I looked at the leaflet from pets at home and it said
"Please think about giving a home to some of the many rescue guinea pigs available for adoption in our " Support Adoption for Pets " adoption centre of other rescue centres across England and Wales.

I was in pets at home the other day and had to have a serious word with myself as I was close to getting these two beauts.

Unfortunatly i don't recommend pets at home for newbies I was told to keep my two boars separate as boars don't get on? was told that cabbage kale broccoli and carrots was all they needed extra they did recommend daily hay thankfully but then said a 80cm by 50cm cage was a suitable living area if you could give them 4 hours run space a day. Luckly I'm wise n got them a much bigger cage kept them together and provide them with a better diet. My boars are very happy and healthy together

It's difficult and I think it will be impossible to say they have improved whilst they are moving their older, unwanted stock into the adoptions centre. Yes the money goes to charity but I still see too many "I've been in the store a long while and need a home" showing that they weren't sold when they were young enough and have been shifted to make space for new stock. Makes me wonder what they did to all these piggies before the adoption centre was there

If I had the room I'd take a "I've been in the store a long while and need a home" piggy. I have lots more love to give unwanted piggies. I have not got the room ...... or the funds come to that!

I often wondered what they did with them to. When I was a kid I got a guingea Pig from them he was already 30 weeks old locked in a cage on his own I was actually told by staff oh hes to old. Why dont you look at our young pigs I refused because i fell in love with him and got him for £2! He was classed as a sale item poor Thing.
