The piggies are with Caroline now in Oakhurst. The very pregnant sow has not delivered yet. She is going to leave some of the pregnant females with Susan Madigan in Bakersfield, and then the rest are coming here on Sunday. *woo-hoo!*

Excellent. Thanks so much for offering to take these pigs and helping coordinate getting them out of the shelter.

No prob. We don't have a piggy population problem here in OC.

Denise told me that what she knows about guinea pigs "could fit in a thimble" so she was more than happy to give them up.

Apparently, there is a volunteer at the Martinez shelter who panics when animals are designated to be euthanized and will give them to just about anyone.

Caroline told me that she was going to pressure the shelter about not releasing guinea pigs to people who aren't 501(c)3 but I asked her not to do that since it would make it difficult for you to get pigs out of there.

They look young. Are they very small? Very cute and way to go on the superhuman effort it took to get them. Well done you guys!

The one with the Teddy fur is a runt. The others actually look about 5 months old to me.

Peg, the pregnant sows went to Bakersfield. But I'm sure there are other pigs in SF for you to foster. Thanks for the offer.
