Well about a month ago she got mad at me and I didn't hear from her for 4 weeks and I thought Hmmm...I finally wrote her last week and she told me to "f off" and to get rid of the pigs!!! Needless to say I have been crushed for me AND the pigs.
Well point being, I am disabled on a fixed income and I live in 1/2 a room in the basement (small space) and the pigs aren't mine...
I feel guilty for getting rid of these pigs but I HAVE to. I am to got out of state for 1-3 weeks coming this Sunday morning and my dad doesn't want to watch the pigs.
I have a few choices but most are grim. I can take them to PAWS but they could get killed or they could adopt them out to losers who would hurt the piggies.
I am trying to get a hold of this one place I just learned about but they never answered their phone!
There is a place in Decatur, IL I found on cavy rescue tonight and I just wrote an email but I again have to wait and see.
I just don't know what to do and I feel so guilty and she did it to me...this is nothing I would have ever done on my own!!!
I hope someone local there can help you out and make good suggestions. It's too bad you are on such a tight time line. Is there any way you can change your plans or delay them a bit? Is there anyone you could talk to for pigsitting until more permanent plans could be made?
As for PAWS, I take it you don't think your local branch is very good? Do they euthanize there?
I'm sorry you are in such a bind, but please keep persuing finding a good place for the piggies. You are the only person they have to look out for them and keep their best interests in mind.
Hope things turn around quickly for you and hope others come by with more advice!
You might want to also post your need for help with cavy placement over in the Cavy Placement forum too!
I guess I can change my plans but I was to follow the family down there on Sunday morning. I have no clue where I am going other than it's a hick town called Potossi.
Yeah from what I understand PAWS does euthanize and I HATE that idea because these girls are SO sweet.
I tried to make a call tonight to see if plans could be changed around and I got no answer...
I sure hope and pray I get some help from Rose or Diana soon.
