The ottawa Huamne society has a case of overcrowding on its hands after by lwas seized more then 80 guinea pigs from a 1 one bedroom apartment on Monday morning.The Number is growing also as some odd 30 females were pregnant.Ontario society for the prevention of cruelty to animals inspector Miriam Smith called it a "Classic case of hoarding" after the ottawa health unit removed the mited infested animals frm crammed living conditions.More then 20 people called the humane society today wanted to adopt and or help the guinea pigs in anyway possible.The Furry Mammels are in good health besides the skin conditons and will be ready to adopt in 2-3 weeks of checkups,said Samantha Laprade,OHS outreach manager,who is asking prospective adopets and rescueers to call 613 725-3166 Ext 258 to sign up on a waiting list.The Public can help out in the mean time by donating Bedding,apples,carrots unopened bags of cavy food and cages.

Good luck with all the piggys. I dont know how someone can do that. I read somewhere that hording is a disease and that they are researching it to try to see of medicatin or therepy can help these people. I actualy fell kind of sorry for them. But i still dont understand how they could do this to animals that they supposedly loved. 30 pregnant pigs!Wow thats a lot of possible problems. I feel so sorry for them all.

well the OHS called me today 18 of the females gave birth last night and all were 4-7 showing that the females have given birth before :S.I think he wasnt hoarding rather eating them.So only 2 of the many babies died so i think thats pretty good concidering the pregnancie conditions.Ill keep everyone posted on the piggys :).

I think he wasnt hoarding rather eating them.
What was his ethnic back ground? I'm curious. You would think even if he was eating them that he would keep his food in better conditions than that? That's pretty discusting.

I had neighbors that were pig farmers that had the same conditions but with 300 pigs on 10 achers.. it was bad. At least your animal controle does something. The California Animal Control is usless. I have a bad case of animal neglect and abuse going on next door. I was even attaced by the dog on my property. They still did nothing.

Good for you for also noticing your local resources deficiencies. I have the same problem here in London Ontario. That is also another topic I am interested in opening up and discussing. The lack of effort that our largly funded Humane Societies and other org. are doing, or not doing rathar, for the animals that rely soley on these organizations. While so many other small and independant home based rescues, like those listed here, are recieving no help at all! The public has no idea that when they donate to the H.S.'s that there are so many things about some of them that are not credible of those donations. If anyone is interested in having this conversation, or discussing with one another what you can do in your town to shape up your local humanes and rescues, please feel free to open a new thread!

I think that would be the greatest thing in the world for all of us to almost rebal against our governemnt and see how the animals are really treated.i hate that the cats here in ottawa in small little cages no bigger than a ****ing rodent cage.Also they stick all the guinea pigs together hamster etc.Certainly hammys cant be placed together after a certain age.its good you live close to me cause we can post things everywhere telling small rescues like ourselves to help eachother out and try and get us sponsers.Like come on the HS's are sponsered and scu kat animal care.Just becasue they have a vet degree if you dont love animals WTF's the point right.I opened a New thread near the bottom in News section please follow up whatever comes to your mind.

Just for your information the ottawa humane society doesn't stick guinea pigs all in one cage, they may stick 2 in a large cage.You have to remember that the humane society doesn't have thousands of cages for each guinea pig that comes in.And if it wasn't for hoarders the humane society wouldn't have this problem.Also if it wasn't for the humane society where would all the irresponsible pet owners dump their animals??? or come to look for them when they have lost them???

First of all you only saw the males out front whihc was still pretty bad.2-3 males in one 3 foot cage.Second the females in the back were even worst .How could you start something you dont know anything about.If something is sponsered by the governement they have the money for care.Wtf's the point knowing about C&C cages which is better economy wise and better for the health of the cavies and keep them in a small cage like that.And yes a couple people there know about C&C cages.I made a presentation all on it how its cheaper cleaner bigger and all that shit.And for your stupid smart remark about where would irresponsible pet owners dump their unwanted pets i know mnay places here to kanata that will take them in a snap.I cant even count the rescues i know in a 30 mile radius.Do reasearch before you start something twit.So Tell me how your helping out to stop hoarding and shelterless animals.Do you take strays in your home and fix them yourself Rather then bringing them to overcrowding HS's??????????

Now I know for a fact that you are not fostering 15 males.Now after all the stuff you have written about the humane society, do you think that they would want you to still foster the 2 possible pregnant gineau pigs you have?

I have seen all the gineau pigs at the humane society. The females were just fine, and they were taking great care of them. The humane society is doing all they can for the pigs, why do you think they are fostering so many. They could have euthanized them due to lack of space.Why don't you get mad at irresponible pet owners and not me or the humane society!! I foster many animals as well, so I am doing all I can to help the stray animals who are sick because owners don't vaccinate their animals.

The ottawa humane society is Not funded by the government. It relies on donations, and fundraising, it gets NO money from the government.The city gets any fees from animals that are brought in as strays and are reclaimed.
The humane society uses tthe money for shelter operation, paying staff, doing surgery on animals that come in injured, and many different other areas, example: foster program, humane education, companion animal program.I think you should do more research on how humane societies operate and where their money goes.

People like you need a life Bylaws came to my door and took them.Pretty Sad that you had ot go cry to them about a little spat on the internet.I really could care less because i doubt the females will make it through their pregnancie not alone in loud HS.You probably just cost 2 Cavies their life.And if you go back and tell them what i just said good for you because you dont care about animals.I think what the humane society is great for what they do but they can house the animals alot better then what they .I have others agreeing with me on here and all across toronto.We'll C ya

Since that person couldnt keep their mouths shut the OHS gets over 100 grand a year on animals.but who cares the main point now is that i had fostered many piggies rabbits etc and he screwed everything up for the lives of the animals.I went back about a week later and found out they put more then 60 down including the ones i was fostering.But it was about a year ago and the Ohs has hcanged procedures because of me.And another thing thats pathetic about humane societies here are.Instead of Neutering and spaying the animals they make you pay.If you wanna get a Female and a Male you have to Get one of them fixed.Who aggrees with me when i say dont care abotu making money lets keep the animal population down.so anyways if anyone wants to sponser or adopt a rescue that gives the animals the time and care needed please dont hesitate to call me.I take in all kinds of rodents and rabbits.if anyone wants pictures of the animals up for adoption please give me an email and ill send you zip file.I charge only 5 dollars a cavy and 10 bucks a rabbit. would give free but i got to make some money.im a 18 year old who loves animals and struggle to do almost everything but continues to rescue every animal i have seen.By the way im not allowed back to the humane society.This isnt a a throw up to that person im just sayin thank you [email protected]

I actually think that cavylover sounds oh so horrible. A person reported her about what she was doing(which was..? I don't know but it didn't sound too great, breeding or something? Horrible conditions?) and she goes running her mouth off. Cavylover, if you are still on this forum, why did they seize those animals? And I don't agree with you thrashing the humane society. They do the best they can... You use cedar, so I don't see how you can thrash them about that either.
Sorry if this was a long time ago thread, but Queen B posted in December 28th so is it a long time ago thread??

I'm back cavylover nepean!!!! I just want to say you are the worse bullsh#ter I have ever read. You have never fostered rabbits and fostered only 2 pigs, but you have adopted a rabbit fron the O.H.S. The 2 pregnant pigs you did foster and the O.H.S siezed from you are alive and well. One had 2 babies and the other had 3. They DID NOT euthanize 60 pigs!!!!, and they don't change procedures because of idiots like you!!!! and of course they want you to get your pigs spayed or neutered, because of breeding, people breed and then they end up being brought in the shelter. The O.H.S encourages spaying and neutering. Please people on these boards DO NOT believe what he says about the O.H.S, he is bitter because he isn't allow to foster anymore. I really wish you knew who you were dealing with, you know some people from O.H.S staff might be reading this. LEON!!!!!

Havanese you are a tatlle tale. We are not children, all though maybe you are, Cavylover was trying to help out in a horrible situation and you ruined it and could have cost those precious animals there lives. The fact that you took this fight out of the forum is deplorable. If you fight here, it stays here. Obviously you were not thinking of those Pigs when you ran to the humane society about a valid opinion.

Cavylover, I believe what you did was heroic, helping the pigs in anyway is so wonderful. Also I understand that dealing with the HS can be very frustrating because it seems like they have enough resources, but fail to use them in the right ways.
This forum should be a place that we can vent our frustrarions without other people "telling" on us. That's just not cool.
