Just in case you need any more info. :)

Have you tried any local animal shelters? They don't always put them on Petfinder, but if you call, they may surprise you. Make sure they're sexed correctly, I get the idea the shelters don't have as much experience with guinea pigs and may not know a lot about them.

People sometimes dump their pets at Petsmart and Petco when they're tired of them. Several people on this site have mentioned that.

Maybe a piggy-train could bring your pig straight to you from farther away.

We got ours from Have-A-Heart. The foster mom met me more than 1/2 way at a dog event up my direction. It was a little chaotic, but what a blessing not to drive down there. We live over an hour away from them. Marci gets back to you promptly (email) and I have heard great things about her on several different sites. I can't believe all she does and with little kids. Whew! She must have great help as well.

I know it might just me but I find american pigs so much friendlier than abbys. All of my americans will eat from my hand, let me pet them and have chats with me. MY 2 abbys run and hide whenever I am around. It has nothing to do with how long I have had them either because the 2 abbys are the only 2 I have had since they were 4 weeks old and have been with me longer than any of my other pigs. :) I would suggest you try to guide your daughter towards an american and not get caught up in all the cuteness of the abbys. Just my opinion. :)

our 4H leader has often commented on the "Aby Attitude" :) maybe that's why i'm so partial to Momma
