In my opinion it sounds like you would be "rescuing" a little pig from this unintentional litter. I don't think it would be a bad thing. Hopefully your friend has taken the steps to prevent further litters from happening.

An unwanted pregnancy is one thing. We consider that a rescue because the people obviously were not careful/knowledgable or it was a pet store animal and the pet store/breeder mills do not care if their "merchandise" is pregs.

If you were to get a guinea pig from someone who INTENTIONALLY put a male and female together to have babies (weather they wanted one to keep themselves, they are going to sell them, or they thought their guinea pigs "wanted to have babies or would enjoy having that experience") <rolls eyes> That would be considered supporting breeding.

i do not think breeding is a good thing or would try to provoke it. it was suppose to be two contained male and female and when getting veggies i think they left a piggie door open and well.everyone knows what happened and then babies!

Yeah thats not an intentional breeding its accidental. But yeah its VERY important to keep unaltered guinea pigs completely secured all the time...
