Yeah, I guess I missed the last part. It does sound like she means to adopt.

There is really only one word in there that makes you think that she wants to get one from a pet store and it's "buy". Technically when you get a piggy from a shelter you are still buying them as you pay an adoption fee which is still money exchanged for a piggy but the only difference is its going to a better cause. By the sound of her last post it really looks like she wants to adopt. At least I hope thats what she means.

Trust me, I'd definitely go adoption from a rescue or foster home! I agree with the poster that said I have to see the bigger picture when considering buying from a pet store, it is sad to not rescue the piggies at a pet store, but will lessen their profits if they cannot sell pigs, and also save lives of other GPs. I am going to do some more research on rescues/foster homes in my area, because most of the ones on the internet are a bit too far for me.

I have never seen a texel in my country. I would love to adopt one from away but there is alot of things to be done before I can bring one back. I would have to take it to the vet and get a letter to give to the Gov. Then I have to wait for it to be approved. Craziness. Now that I think about it I may consider doing this for a texel.

While my Mom and I were looking up piggy rescues in my area last night, she found a place called "This Little Piggy," and on September 10, they are having a "Piggy Field Day," where they will have a meet-and-greet type event with all adoptable pigs. I'm really hoping to go, and I look forward to it! I'll give the link if you guys want to check it out. By the way, I don't see my profile picture up yet, so I'll put a picture of Snicks in here, too. Here is that link:


Guinea Pig Rescue, Coatesville and Lionville, PA - Home

@SweetiePig--that is so cool! The texels are really cute! I'd love to see pictures :)
@LongLostCurls--that sounds like a lot of steps to adopt a little guinea pig! I'm sure that would take awhile once the Government gets involved, too. I wonder if you decided to get a guinea pig, a rescue or foster home could help the process move along a little faster, by writing letters or something? Just a thought.
