While i am strugglin to get myself together and it will sure take a long time..i saw this that broke my heart: ... s-12379863

What can we even do in situations like this?

I think this *people*are breeding pigs for small amount of money, i doubt it was an accidental litter, but i amnot sure.
You cant report to authorities here, cause nothing will happen, they willclean the cage and say all is alright, when you dont even know if pigs have
hay and water.
If you go and buy them and surrender them to guinea pig support organisations they can breed again. Its written only they are few months old, so i dont know if they are giving away adults, too and will not breed anymore.

HEre are some guinea pig support facebook groups(i am not on facebook, i m old school:)), and hope someone will take an action to save them..

What would you do with your experiences? Any good ideas?

If you lived nearby, perhaps education, sexing, and separation could work.

I live one hour and 20minutes away if you go by car ...they re from same city we got Irie from, which is a little bit of drive to do.

I saw they re already on some facebook adds, so maybe its better for them to find them new homes one by one, i think they surely will.

Thank you for reply, anyway..:)

Sadly, i am afraid this didnt end too well.. I hope i am wrong.

Ad was removed after only few days, usually animals are looking for home for weeks or months..and its not available and it wasnt reposted. I doubt they all found home so quickly. Sometimes if guinea pig fans call up at wierd ads and tell them to take care of animals better, sellers remove the ad and animals are not saved(but i dont know what happend in this case:(...). I vebeen really thinking of getting them and surrendering them to guinea pig support organization, but i didnt expect ad will be gone in three days!

However i also saw an ad for some guinea pig male,long haired really nice boy, couloured similar like Irie, but really big pig like Lee, but before i could even think of maybe calling someone else took him. At least i bet he found new home, even if it was not meant to be with us. :(.
I am still very upset cause Irie broke on through, i couldnt decide straight away for this new guy, so i was thinking too long..when i decided to maybe call, even if time is not right for me, ad was gone. But as i wrote,small money was requested, so whoever was willing to pay-i bet he is in good hands and that only thing that matters.

But now I need to take a break from guinea pigrelated things and get myself together. I bet this long haired lion found great home and i hope this pigs that i opened topic for them are still alive and in good place. If there will be any news of them i ll update, but i doubt.

I hope they in the end are well taken care of and do not breed!
