The British Llama Society operates a free rehoming service for llamas and guanacos. We appreciate that sometimes people need to rehome their animals for reasons outside their control. As animal welfare is our highest priority, both members and non-members are welcome to use the BLS Rehoming Process to rehome their llamas.
It is British Llama Society policy to only rehome animals to BLS members so that we are confident that rehomed animals are going to suitably experienced homes (this also serves as a benefit to our members).
If you have (or know of) a llama or guanaco that needs rehoming, please email our Rehoming Director Matt Yorke by clicking here.
Please include the following information in your email. There are no right or wrong answers, it is just to provide potential adopters a clearer picture on suitability:
- Your location:
- Are you currently a member of the British Llama Society?
- If so what is your membership number?
- Number of llamas to be rehomed:
- Gender male / female / gelded:
- Age of llamas:
- Reason for rehoming:
- Are the llamas handleable?
- Are the llamas haltered trained?
- Used to children / dogs / other livestock?
- Do they have any bad habits that the new owner should really be aware of?
- Do they respect fencing?
- Are the llamas in general good health, or do they have any particular health requirements that the new owner should be aware of?
- Have the llamas been subject to annual vaccinations / wormings?
- Are the llamas microchipped?
- Are the llamas registered with the BLS?
- Would you be willing to pay a contribution to the BLS Llama Welfare Fund once a new home has been found for your llamas? More information on the Welfare Fund can be found here.
- Can you confirm that you accept that there will be no financial compensation from the new owner to yourself as a result of taking on care and ownership of your llamas?
- Can you supply photos of the llama(s) in need of rehoming, for potential adoptees to view? (a picture tells a thousand words)
Please note that for logistical reasons, the BLS does not maintain a list of individuals who are waiting to rehome llamas. When a llama becomes available for rehoming, it is emailed to all BLS members and it is up to members to review each llama for suitability and preference.
