Actually i did because i picked my girls up from a local petstore called petsaver. And i dont want a boar because of the impaction issue, and they have a local vet clinic in petsaver were i saw my pigs get checked out. So im happy with my choice.

Yea okay i did lie right their but like i said why wouldn't i buy from a shelter or rescue? If they actually had guinea pigs i would of did it in a heartbeat. Then i would be giving them a great home and saving their life's. But after all of the websites i looked at, and the shelters i called, only one place had 1 pig and it was a male. I have already mentioned it. And they would be cheaper then a pet store, so its not like im supporting the pet store. I just want a pair of lovely girl guinea pigs. And the petstore i got them from only had one liter of guiena pigs and it was there first liter ever. I know that because its a local place and she said the breeder was done and they had all the pets checked because it has a built in vet store. So both my pig's are healthy as can be =D
Well, good for you. I'm really glad you're able to be happy about a choice that you made for purely selfish reasons and that instead of helping a homeless pig or pigs, you've actually done your part to create more, and ensure that there will be another pig bred to replace the females you just positively had to have right this instant. What a wonderful thing you've done, helping to ensure the already tremendous overpopulation problem just goes on and on.So im happy with my choice.
