These two are housed together.


A161993 F, red, 3 years

I know that Cavy Spirit is full but have you contacted Teresa anyway?



I hate the holiday season.

I forwarded the email to her although I don't know if she read it. I asked the person who sent it to me to also send it to her but I don't know if that was done. Thanks for the suggestion.

I know that she is pretty busy right now. Are you on AIM? I tried to IM you but it said you weren't online. I'm Charybdis444.

Anyways, I am taking 14 from PHS on Dec. 18. They are coming down to L.A. I'm crazy for even writing this. IM me if you can.

Hmmmm. I don't know what aim is but I do have IM unless I've turned it off. I have another screen name and may be on using themecages@aol.com if I'm working on the theme-cage albums. What is AIM?

Looks like I have AIM (IM). I was probably on under the other screen name. I tried to IM you just now but you were signed off.

I called today and all of the listed pigs are still at the shelter (and need homes ASAP).

I sent your email address on to BizyLizy. It's very generous of you to help out. I know someone who can take a couple of sows but the pigs would have to be transported to L.A. before Dec. 14. Let me know if you need my help.

Thanks. I'll be checking back tonight with the person who sent me the email and with someone who fosters and volunteers with the guinea pigs at SF ACC. All listed pigs are still there and the person who makes the decision when they are put down is off on Mondays. We're trying to find the exact cut-off date so that the info can be sent to the HRS list tomorrow at the latest.

Do you have a preference as to which ones you would prefer to take or how many? The last of the two rescue males with mites that I have is to be placed this weekend I believe (I have a call into them). I might be able to hold a couple here prior to transport. Space is limited though since I just took in four of five hamsters to foster this weekend. They were picked up from a shelter by a local rescue group. Two of the hamsters are special needs but two should be placed this weekend.

I checked with the person who does volunteer work with the guinea pigs at the SF ACC and she indicated that she plans on taking about three of them. It was too late to call her back tonight so I'll check with her tomorrow. Also, an email was sent by the contact person to the House Rabbit Society list tonight asking if anyone can adopt, foster, or assist in driving some guinea pigs to potential foster homes in Upper Washington State or Southern California.

This may sound like a silly question but what sort of person would leave SO many pigs at once for the SF ACC to deal with? I don't understand why they got them in the first. Has anyone tried to deal with someone like that? To understand their reasons?

Just curious.

Good question that I don't have an answer for in this case. I'm just the "messenger" helping those who are seeking homes immediately for the guinea pigs, which is the focus at this time.

Kleenmama has indicated that she is able to take seven guinea pigs if a way is found to transport them to her. That would leave two remaining pigs who need new homes.

One or two may go into foster care. Also, contact will be made by the person who originated the email request to find out the actual deadline for all of the guinea pigs at SF ACC.

All will be "saved" if transport can be found to Oregon and the LA area (LA by the 14th).

BTW, thanks to all of those who are helping (both on and off the thread) to resolve the problem!

Kleenmama has indicated that her preference is females: there are three groups of females that would equal the count of seven that she can take. She would consider taking a neutered male but all females would be easiest for her at this time.

That would be easiest for me, but as I told you, rather than see them euthanized I can take all 12 if need be.

I have adopted out 15 in the last 6 weeks, so 12 would still not put me at the level I was at.

There has to be someone who can drive them part way. I can drive clear into Oregon.
If there is someone in the SF area that can come a little way into regon, it would be a 6 hour drive. We could both do this in one day.
If they are going to be euthanized, I will drive to San Fran, I guess.

What is that, about 12 hours from Seattle? Let me do some checking.

Word has been left with both the shelter contact-person and the outside contact-person: transport has been found on a private south-bound plane and we are still looking for partial or complete transport up north.

Charybdis, please contact me via email regarding the potential transport to your area. Thanks.

The LA resource is no longer available since the person took in three gps from another rescue. The person with the private plane is willing to fly to Redding, CA next weekend if needed. Also, kleenmama indicated that she could drive down the first of the year and pick them up.

However, I listened to a message on my machine about midnight and I think that the message indicated that the shelter will not release a lot of 12 gps. Their need is to place six and that is the count that they will release. Three have been approved to go to the person who fosters gps and hamsters for the SF ACC and three more have been approved for another person, apparently me, if I understood the message correctly. If I do not take them, I don't know (yet) what will happen since they need to have them removed from the shelter ASAP. I deleted the message and will need to check with the appropriate people tomorrow.

I had previously indicated that I had no room: I just took in four hamsters from Rattie Ratz, a rat rescue group, for foster/placement and will pick up the remaining one who is on medical hold this Sunday. These hamsters are from the Santa Cruz shelter: http://imageevent.com/bizylizy/rescuehamsters

I am placing the last of the two rescued males with mites this Sunday but that doesn't free up room: http://imageevent.com/bizylizy/rescues
