Sorry guys, I guess I shouldnt say I am looking for breeders....let me clarify that one. I do not support the delibarate breeding of piggies as there are too many unwanted pets out there to begin with. I am looking for someone who has a pig that has had babies, or someone who has unwanted piggies. I refuse to buy from a pet shop and the closest small animal rescue society is out in BC! I have been on the hunt for over 2 months now!! I've made the cage, bought all the toys and necessities, done my research on the care, BUT CANT FIND ANY ADOPTABLE PIGGIES! If anyone can help me with this, it would be muchly appreciated. Willing to pay whatever, but am specific on wanting short haired female piggies....oh, and if anyone can tell me how to edit previous postings, that'd be great too! LOL :)

Squirle! One of her cute piggy is suppostly preggant you need to send her a private message to her. She's going to be looking for good homes for her babies if she can't keep them all and if you can proof that your a good home she should be able to give or sell you one.

09-29-05, 06:19 pm
Yes, I'll be giving them away for no more than probably $5 to a good owner. I just pmed you so reply when you can!

ufortunetly I dont have a short haired preggy piggy, but I have a Abby, you don't need to brush their hair or anything.

Thanks Adreanne1422! I have PM'd Squirle about them...Squirle your pigs are soooo cute! What luck to find someone in Calgary with pregnant piggies....I have been looking for so long. I have made their cage and bought everything I need for them at Petsmart....saw some really sweet little baby pigs there when I went. I wanted to take them home sooo bad. Did you know they have them in AQUARIUMS there??? Oh I felt so bad.....I just wanted to take ALL of them out of there....and yell at the staff in the process! Only thing that stopped me from buying them was knowing that they'd just breed some more and put more inside those awful little aquariums...poor things!

Your welcome! Hope you guys make something work out.

Hi, I'm trying to find two guinea pigs in calgary for a resinable price must be babies around 4/8 weeks old, perferbily short coated but long coateds considered please let me know if you know where I can get some.. I'd like to buy from a breeder.

10-04-05, 02:41 pm
ha ha ha you can join the club then!!!! I also live in Calgary and I have been looking since July. Oh, and you might want to avoid on here talking about looking for breeders. This site is geared towards animal rescues, not deliberate breeding and pet stores. Someone might tear a strip off of ya if you dont phrase your questions right! Trust me, I know! LOL

Anyways, I have 2 leads for piggies. The 1st is Squirle from this site. BUT I am 1st in line on that one!!! :) She has 1 long haired piggy who is definitely pregnant and 1 short haired that MIGHT be. I have already requested 2 short haired females from her (if possible of course) but you may want to email her. The babies wont be ready till mid december.

My 2nd lead is I have been chatting with a gal who works for the Small Animal Rescue Society of BC who is trying to line me up with some for mid December if I cant get 2 females from Squirle. Are you wanting to get some right away? Because if you are willing to wait, and they can line up piggies for me for then, I will be paying for travelling costs for the pigs and I could always request a few more if need be. Let me know!


10-04-05, 04:08 pm
Hi, well no I'm not looking for them right this second but it would be nice :), I want them by mid november but will probly just go down to pisces and get two by the end of this month, noone get mad at me for getting them from there please!

10-04-05, 04:54 pm
Awwww Im not mad, but you should really know that pet stores are the worst possible place to get piggies...it's truly sad how petstores work. Do me a favor before you buy, and at least read some of the stuff on this site.....especially about petstores! You will find the info on here invaluable and it will probably change your perspective on pet stores deeply!! I wont preach any more, but check it out, and if you like, I can keep you in the loop as to what I can find for adoptables...

10-04-05, 05:32 pm
I know all about pet store, what everyone says about them, but to tell you all the truth the only thing I haev never bought from a pet store was my dogs, everything else I get from pet shops and there always healthy!

10-05-05, 07:01 pm
Pet shops stink I think!

I got Moch and Lotte from there and Mocha's pregnant and Lotte might be! Its annoying!

deffinetly get form a shelter or breeder (or me of course, lol) much better idea I say.

I live in Lethbridge... and i'm trying to find a partner pig for my little Sushi. It's proving difficult. I heard there's a Gp rescue in Calgary, but the site link is dead for it.
I want to rescue, but honestly it's proving tough.

10-11-05, 08:36 am
Oh how I know!!! Try petfinders.com They have listings for adoptables all over Canada. If you're lucky, you might find some right in Lethbridge. So far I have had no luck, except for Squirle with her preggo piggies! :)

10-11-05, 01:15 pm
No luck on Petfinder. Ah well. I'll keep searching to find a friend for Sushi.

10-25-05, 08:10 pm
Theres a SPCA here in Calgary with piggys!

Mocha might actually not be pregnant (tho I'm not sure) so check out the Caglary SPCA web site if you want to rescue!
