First of all I am not a mill or anything bad like that. Alot of people have been very rude to me and acused me of having bad intintions for the piggies, But I dont. I just have alot of room and alot of time to help out homless guinea's. And just to put it short I just love all animals. I will take in any unwanted Guinea Pigs, Rabbits, Ratties,and Mice. I also do buy babys or adults for sale. Unless I just have to many for me to properly take care of then I will always take them in. I will also buy cages. Any cages help to home these critters. Also people say bad things about my name. I have an American Pitbull Breeding Kennel. I only breed my pitbulls when I have several requests for puppys. Any extra pups are put up for sale. I occasonally Breed my small animals, but not often. None of my rescues or any other animals for that matter will be sold for feeders or any illegal , or abusive purposes. All animals are provided with top health care and lot and lots of love. Thanks for your time. E-mail me for any question.

You breed. You buy animals. hmmm.
I see in your profile, you are from Oroville. You really must invite Josephine over to come see your animals. If you are willing to have her over for a visit (she's in your town), that would put to rest any of my concerns. She is quite awesome and might be able to provide you with some tips.
The post you start (Charybdis) should be along the lines of an ideal rescue. No names named. People can make of it what they wish. Not all people will feel it necessary to find and adopt from such a rescue, but many may.
american_pitbull13, there are people who should never have animals. I don't think this is specifically directed at you, although there are people who are completely against breeding guinea pigs at all. I have no idea what you are talking about by continuing a "line". There is absolutely no need for a guinea pig to procreate. There are enough "lines" already. Guinea pigs no matter what their parentage are all dolls.
If you love your animals, you will indeed not breed them. The risks are high in these little guys -- lots of complications, many sad story. One of them was how one longtime member wanted another girl as sweet and loveable as she was. And instead lost her.
Pregnancies are very hard on guinea pigs. If you do some research you will find out why it is never advised.
Also you have all your animals in one room? Have the rabbits been checked to see if they carry bordetella or pasturella? Bordetella is deadly to pigs.
You sound very young. Do you have the funds for vet care? Are you in a rental?
Gotta say - your choice of user name is not a great one for a guinea pig forum. Using a breed of dog with a rep for being vicious(whether or not deserved, that is the rep)and an unlucky number (13) results in a name full of belligerence and defiance.
People will react to it. Was that your plan?
