Is there any way to get a Patagonian Cavy in California?

Postby TWang51022 » Thu Oct 22, 2009 6:12 pm

I'm just curious because I live in California and these are dream pets of mine. It would seem like they're banned, but I was curious if there were any loopholes in the law or something of the sort.

Does anyone on this board that lives in California own any exotic that might initially seem illegal and/or banned?

I really want my Cavy, but I also don't want to leave California, so I'm trying to make this work.

Thanks!

You need two years experience with the species to get one. You could try volunteering somewhere to get the time with them.

Aah, I see. Thanks. (I think I'll just get one in the future when I move.)

Two years specifically with this species, or would volunteering at a rescue that deals with other large rodents suffice?

It's very hard to find information about this kind of permit, other than on from the government.

(f) Experience required. A new applicant for an exotic wildlife possession permit shall provide documentation of at least 2 years experience of hands-on work with the designated species, including care, feeding, handling, training and husbandry. This experience shall be from a recognized/approved facility and the owner, manager or licensee of this facility shall provide a letter of reference.


So it must be with the specific species that you want.
