The Rabbit Rescue who was going to help with the guinea pigs...contacted me today.

The lady who originally contacted them about the guinea pigs never got back intouch with them even though the rabbit rescue repeatedly emailed them..

The rabbit rescue is very upset about this and we don't know what happened to the guinea pigs.

It's very sad since I had three people willing to help out.

By the way Jjorgi, you were approved! The rabbit rescue sent you an email...did you receive it?

Are you thinking of helping to foster one of the rabbits that may be euthanised at the shelter? That's fantastic if you do!!!!

If you go to her website, she gives a big list of things to do and not to do when you foster/adopt a rabbit.

I saw a post about this on craigslist today and if those are the pigs in that pig I see alot of roans and that is badddddd to breed together as it could produce lethals.This could go from 75 pigs to to 150 pigs in just a few weeks time.Even more............Geeeez this makes me feel sick.

I saw that post as well on Craigslist. I am going to email Kathleen from the Rabbit Rescue to see if she heard back from the lady who wants to rescue the pigs.

Lethals are born white and usually blind and born with several difformities missing teeth,eyes,heart problems,etc... Not every white guinea pig is lethal!
