I haven't been able to think of a rescue name (Well I have thought of a couple and so has my friend but I want to here all of your ideas) and my friend has been helping me too but so so far I don't think we have found a name that clicks. So anyways, any one have any name ideas? The rescue is strictly a Guinea Pig Rescue we won't be rescuing anything else.

You're starting a rescue? Really? That's awesome. I've always wanted to start a guinea pig or hamster rescue, of course I'd have to have a lot of money so I don't think I'm quite ready yet, ha ha.

I like the name Guinea Pig Lovers to the Rescue, or something to that effect, maybe Cavy Lovers to the Rescue or CLR for short.

Which will be if I make tons of money, lol, to pay for vet bills. I don't know how I am going to afford it, but it might be possible.

I was just thinking.. you say you will only take in 6 as your maximum. what are you going to do when someone comes to you with another one which would make your 7th. are you just going to say that you're sorry, but you can't take in another one? I don't really know how you could do that. seem like, being a rescue, you would want to do whatever you could to help any homeless piggies. Then again, I suppose saving 6 is better than none. I just know that if I were you, I wouldn't be able to tell anybody no when another animals life was at stake. I just recently adopted 2 piggies from Texas Rustler's, which this lady does out of her home. every room in her house is full of piggies. www.theguineapigrescue.com check it out if you need more ideas as far as pricing or site ideas.

Every single rescue, big or small has its limits whether they're because of space, time or money. I think you just have to have a other resources to hand whether it's referring them to other rescues, having a waiting list and asking them to keep hold of the pigs until you can take them in, looking for foster carers or giving them thorough advice on how to look for a new home for their pet independently. Helping even a few guinea pigs makes a real difference, I think you need to focus on what you can do rather than what you can't.

Congratulations on your new piggers, imaloserdottie - hope they're settling in well!

Well if I can't take the pigg in in that doesn't mean that I can't help the owners decide after all to keep the guinea pig and teach them how to care for it right. And it also doesn't mean that I can't ask them to foster it in their own home until I find room. And there are HSs around where I live and if I absolutly can't take one in I will tell them to go to there. I know that many people have huge rescues like CavySpirit with hundreds (100 0r 200) of piggs. But everyone has a limit to what they can rescue. I am not planning on being a huge rescue. But even my rescuing of 6 piggs will but a dent in helping all the homeless piggies.
Thanks for the link!

Oh and I can't be a big rescue do to space and money... A lot of people in my house are allegic to guinea pigs (or at least they tell me they are) so no I can't have piggs in every room in my house. Seeing as I pretty much already have my piggs in every room in the house that they can be in. So thats why I have a limit of 6. If I desperately needed to I could find more room. But I want to set limits. And I am not rich so no with only about 5 friends helping out I can not take in a 100 or even 50 piggs.

how are you going to handle vet bills? donations?

how are you going to handle vet bills? donations?Well I just made $110 at the last two bazaars (Well it was one bazaar but it lasted two days). So that will go to paying vet bills when i get the first rescue pigger. And I am friends with my vets (there are two of them) and they said they would give the check ups free but then any medicine etc I would pay for out of my own pocket. Which is fine with me.

For donations I was mostly thinking, food (Cavy Cuisine, Wagners), veggies/fruits, bedding (except cedar pine is ok I will just air dry it), towels, fleece (even if I don't use it as bedding I can use it for floor time etc), extra cages unless they are metal, broken, just plain gross etc., supplies people had left over from their pets that they don't have anymore, toys, water bottles, cubes, coroplast signs.

And if the other people that are in the rescue agree, then I may do something where you sponser a pigg for $5 a month until he/she gets adopted with weekly updates. Then I will send a notice to you (example) telling you they were adopted and to who etc. Just general info. Then if you wanted to sponser another pigg I would send you an email or letter with a pic of the another pigger.

I don't think I will do just money donations, because then I have to add that to taxes etc., and then everyone will want a little tax write off sheet. But I guess if they really wanted to "donate" money they could buy something from the website.

My husband and I are concidering becoming a rescue for cavies in pgh, pa area. Maybe sometime next year. I love to sew and I would sell things at a craft show or a bazaar or at a mall and rent a booth. I would make binkies for the piggies and bunnies, dog beds or cat beds, decorative pillows for couch or beds and ect. I probably would name it Lewis Cavy Rescues.

Well I want to keep it rather small. And I have already worked out advertising with a few people. Right now I am currently busy so I am not doing to much that has to do with the rescue.
YepI will keep you all updated!!
