    Giving up hope.

    I'm giving up hope on trying to get guinea pig off craigslist I'm not over exaggerating I've been stood up 4 times! 3 times I drove 2 and half hours out of my way! As for shelters I've called and they lady at the front desk said she hasn't seen any small animals come through the shelter in a year and a half. But I was at petsmart today and noticed one piggy have a scratch and the lady said that most like he'd be put up for adoption because they can sell animals with imperfections but first they had to have a vet check him out. Would it be okay if I tried getting that pig? Since technically I'm not paying for it (petsmart adopts out for free) ? Or should I keep trying with craigslist ?

    I would definitely try for the male piggy from Petsmart, then he would be going to a good home for sure. How big is your current cage? If I remember correctly the cage size for 2 males is at least a 2x5 C&C. Even if their vet clears the pig still quarantine for 2 weeks just to make sure he doesn't develop respiratory since it's very common with pet store pigs. Look for any harsh breathing or crust in his eyes.

    I personally wouldn't use craigslist at all. Trying going to the website guinea pig finder. It's filled with people who need to rehome their guinea pigs. I wouldn't go to a pet store either, I may have gotten Betman from a pet store, and he's fine, but a lot of times people aren't that lucky.

    I've used that as well! The one that's for my town hasn't responded and the adds over a month old so I'm assuming they already rehome it

    2x7 is great! If you want to adopt the Petsmart pig I would go back and tell them in person that you are interested and give them your number so they will notify you when he's cleared by their vet.
