They are seniors.
I found a rescue in Pennsylvania that will (hopefully) still take them. But I need help getting them from Missouri to Pennsylvania.
Unless someone has a better idea for rescue/ foster/ rehoming.
I'm overwhelmed from taking a human family with teenagers into my home, I'm not young anymore, and signed up for more than I'm able to handle well. I have rescue cats and other pets, it's just too much.
They need a place willing to give them medical care and appropriate comfort care/ hospice at the end, when that time comes.
I just can't. I need less to care for, and less to pay for etc. Please don't judge me, I'm about to lose my mind. Ha
I heard that sometimes people do a
"PIGGIE train" - Where several people volunteer to drive a distance, and then pass the pigs to the next driver, etc, so it's not too terribly long of a drive for any one person....
Is anyone living in between St. Louis and Pittsburgh PA ?
- And got the T-shirt
As far as I know, though, that stretch of country is a guinea pig desert, at least as far as these forums are concerned. We've got enough people up and down the east and west coasts to make a piggy train, but very few people across the middle of the country.
I live in Iowa, about an hour north of NW MO. So not much help. You're 6 hours away from me.
- For the Love of Pigs
If you go to petfinder you also find adoptable pigs at the Animal Protective Association of MO. It looks like they have 7 pigs & I think at least one of them was there when we were looking a month ago. I just called them & they have a no-kill policy with respect to running out of space. Sounds like they'd take them, with a rehoming fee of $20 & a cage.

Hope this helps.
