Welcome to the forum!

As it turns out, I just looked for guinea pigs in BC for someone yesterday. When you're ready to adopt your pigs, take a look at Pet adoption: Want a dog or cat? Adopt a pet on Petfinder (http://www.petfinder.com). Put in "small and furry" as the animal and "guinea pig" as the breed, and you'll find more than a dozen pigs just waiting on a loving home.

Start your education by reading the articles at Guinea Pig Education, Care, Rescue and Adoption at Cavy Spirit (http://www.cavyspirit.com) -- they're down the left-hand side of the page. Click on the Home button at the top of this page to learn about cages. Read the "read me" and "sample menus" stickies at the top of the Diet and Nutrition forum here.

And enjoy getting ready for your pigs!

Welcome to the site. I have found lots of interesting information on here and I have only been a member for a few days. :D So glad I found this site myself.

Welcome! It's wonderful you came to get educated first because that will save you a lot of money and confusion in the long run ;)
There's a great thread about kids and piggies you should check out that has LOTS on interesting thoughts.
