I am not sure if I'm allowed to point out a Craigslist ad. Basically, I have been looking for guinea pigs online and I came across this ad. I will link it... if links are not allowed, admins, please notify me and remove it.

(broken link removed)

As you can see, there are FIVE guinea pigs in A TINY FISH TANK, god knows if any of them are fixed or not. I've already emailed the owner telling them my concerns. What can I do about this ad? Can I flag it, take it down? Can I get these pigs to a shelter or rescue? I doubt anyone will want to adopt them from this ad when the conditions they are living in are clearly shown. The females could be pregnant, ears could be chewed off, they could have respiratory issues along with a bunch of other illnesses....who knows. I feel really bad for them. I suspect this person is a breeder if they are keeping both genders together like this.

Persinally if you know the area they are in, I would contact the local humane society/local animal rescue and report them

The area is actually shown in the ad. However, I'm not sure how to go from there. How can I report this to a rescue without knowing the exact address? Would they be able to find out if I gave them the link to the ad?

There's no point in reporting them to a rescue. They can't do anything about it unless the people voluntarily surrender them. You'd have to report it to animal control, and hope that the conditions are bad enough that they'll step in.
