Hi and welcome to the forums! Your pig is gorgeous - what's his/her name?

I'm just down the motorway from you in Dunblane. Where did you get your piggies from? I just got a baby from a rescue in Perth.

You don't rescue pigs from pet stores. You contribute to the serious overpopulation and mistreatment surrounding pet stores. You rescue from a rescue centre or shelter, not from a pet store or breeder. Sorry to sound harsh but it's true.

I agree. Especially since the largest private cavy rescue in Scotland is on your doorstep. She currently has almost 70 piggies in her care. If you need advice on adopting in future (buying at Pets at Home is not adopting!) please feel free to email me.

Well I only just found out that there was a guinea pig re-homing centre I hapen to suffer from mild aggrophobia with public panic disorder and can't handle traveling much but I guess some people are just full of themselves and she not be telling people what to do Well considering that they where bought from a couple that were in the store that re-home guinea pigs. They were going to be giving the store there pigs because they were going out of buisness because of them. If people can't understand that then that is your problem don't make me feel bad for doing the right thing

So you're saying you got them from someone who was giving them up to pets at home? I'm very confused.

Whoa right there. Enough. That comment is uncalled for. I will tell you straight up that if you "buy" a pig at a petstore, it's not rescuing.

You didn't say you "adopted" the pigs from a couple, you said you "bought" them.

yes I gave them how much they would of been sold for so you know where lost out on more money. If I wasn't having to deal with doing water changes on 3 tanks and answering questions one 2 of the fish forums I am on. Just half the time I get upset.

Ok so you paid an adoption fee equal to what the store would have sold them for?

Also, @ is not a word. It's "at". Please make sure you spell words out and not use chat speak. I hope you read the link I gave you earlier. It's a must read on this forum.
