Adopting A Guinea Pig

ADOPTING A GUINEA PIG


Sometimes people don't know that a small animal resscue shelter is near them. Or sometimes their local SPCA shelter has guinea pigs avaliable for adoption also.

Animal rescues generally know the animal's background, personality, & sometimes their medical history. In rescue shelters they are socialized, correctly sexed, and alot healthier than pet stores.

THE HEARTBREAKING PATTERN


Rescue shelters, along with many animal activists are helping to end this horrible cycle. So why rescue guinea pigs?

-- Because backyard breeders feel that there is a demand for breeding these animals. They take poor care of them, and do not give them the proper medical attention, among other horrible conditions. Until the animals are finally sold to pet stores.

-- Pet stores do not know how to properly take care of these delicate little creatures. So they are sold to the public sick, and NOT correctly sexed.

-- People are bringing home guinea pigs that have unexpected pregnancies, and who are also sick. When some of these animals are no longer wanted, they're sometimes surrendered to a rescue shelter.

-- So if we skip the pet stores, and go directly to adopting guinea pigs from a rescue shelter, then the backyard breeders would no longer be making money. This would force the backyard breeders to stop breeding guinea pigs.

-- This is our goal! Please help end the horrible cycle!
