    Smile hi from Ireland .................! .

    Hi all,
    well i'm very new to the guinea pig (cavy) owner world so i'm still a little nervous about a lot of things but i'm gettin there slowly but surely.
    I'm currently looking into trying to build a bigger enclosure for my boys so if anyone has any helpful tips they would be gratefully received. There's not really a lot of things in the pet stores over here for guinea pigs so ingenuity is the name of the game.

    looking forward to many years of pet piggy ownership....

    I'm moving to Northern Ireland soon. Anyone know of any cavy rescues there? And do the ISPCA rescue guinea pigs? I've contacted them but got no reply in the 5 months since I emailed them!

    Hi! I live in Dublin, Ireland too and am still learning something new everyday. I'm looking for someone in Ireland who shares my passion! Oh yeah, for cavy-cool-crazy, there's a small pet rescue centre in Tipperary I think (If it's any use to you!). So I'll see you around. xxx

    Re: hi from Ireland ..!

    Blimey it seems so long since I posted that. I arrived here 9 months ago. Thanks for the reply though ozzypig. I've heard of the one in Tipperary but that's about 4 hours away and I can't get to it. I can't adopt any more pigsters until I get back to mainland UK now anyway but it's nice to know of any centres that are around.

    I think it's www.guinea-pig-rescue.com, I'm pretty sure. I can't reach it either but I like looking at the website!

    You should pm princess poppy about adopting pigs in Ireland since she has done a ton of research on that.

    Re: hi from Ireland ..!

    The Irish Guinea pig rescue closed down in the summer. Hi i'm from Ireland also. Go to pets ireland. A lot of Irish rescue sites use it. Aisling from Limrick rescue is often on the site and is very helpful. As for the cage. I use grids. Ebay 14-16 pounds. I had ine shipped from the u.s. It's pretty difficult to fine a piggie to adopt but keep keep looking .
