That's good. Hopefully such things will improve then. It's nice to remeber that there are people out there trying to improve these things.I have talked with one responsible breeder here in my town. She has a waiting list for her pups, breeds for temperament and health and has a three page interview form. A buyer must have a fenced yard of a certain minimum size, be willing for her to do a home visit, gets no papers until they can prove spaying or neutering has occurred and must agree that if they give up their dog, it will go back to her. She may sell one puppy a year for show that is not neutered or she may not sell any that year.
Oh, and yes, she has a couple of rescue dogs and will rehome any golden that needs help. That's responsible.
The vet tech school I go to is willing to spay/neuter shelter and rescue guinea pigs for free. We just ask to use them in the program for a few weeks so we can learn how to handle them, take blood samples from them, etc. We will neuter them and treat any other health problems they may have. Sadly there are still no takers! That's why we have to use ones from PetSmart for learning that aspect of pet health. We always have a long waiting list of people wanting to adopt those pigs too after we're finished with them. The two I'm baby-sitting for the month (we're on break) are already spoken for!
I wonder if other vet schools are willing to do that. Guinea pig rescues might want to look into that if they need to neuter/spay their pigs.
