These Little Piggies



2706

I don’t even think pet stores carry 30 Guinea Pigs! What the hell do you need with that many and what the hell do you need with that many while waiting at Walmart?

    There was probably a rabbit and small game show somewhere nearby judging from the cages and the box. As to why they’re in a Walmart… I’m wondering that myself :P

    Those look like show cages and show cavys (g. pigs). Yes they show these little guys just like they have dog shows and cat shows.

    I doubt this was taken in a walmart.

    Check out the American Rabbit Breeders Association at http://www.ARBA.net – there’s all sorts of pictures of show rabbits and cavys. Some of the breeds are really quite funny looking!

    Check out the American Rabbit Breeders Assn website at http://www.ARBA.net

    They have all sorts of pictures of the recognized (show) breeds. Some are really crazy looking – one even looks like it has a PERM. LOL

    Wal-Mart is a drop off for most small pet shops. If a small pet shop needs a small order they can use a bigger store to get it dropped off so that they don’t have to worry about their minimum order amount. I know I used to run a small mom and pop pet shop. We had to do that every once and a while. BTW most of your common pets that are in any store in your area more than likely come from one warehouse.

    How do we even know that the person sitting on the bench is even associated with the caged things? Maybe the cages were already stacked there and the person just happened to sit next to them? At any rate, I see nothing truly “PoWM” about this picture; just odd to see so many of the critters in one place, is all.

    This is obviously a small animal rescue doing adoptions. Our Walmart allows the rescues and no-kill shelters in the area to use the area out front or just inside of the store for adoptions on alternating weekends during nice weather, since these programs are often run out of people’s private homes. Good for this Walmart! And shame on you, PoW, for trying to make this a bad thing. This is a fail for you.

    @ Katy, thanks for explaining about the adoptions. I’ve never seen them anyplace but at the local pet stores. I doubt that any of our other regulars (and irregulars!) knew about it, either.

    I’ve seen the same thing at our Walmart…no-kill shelters and private individuals trying to give away/sell pets…though it is usually just cats or dogs. That many guineas makes me suspect either a raid on an unethical breeder or a local research lab just closed down.

    Actually they were on their way back from a show and their car got a flat so they were buying a new tire. Brought the critters in so as not to leave them in the car while their car was being worked on. Smelled horrible, was very loud and even the Wal Mart employees were coming by to gawk.

    to Katie and others, yes, these are obvioulsy show animals. They do not live in these cages. They are only transported in them like you would crate a dog or cat. Transporting them in larger cages can lead to injuries if the car makes an emergency hard stop or hard turn. The animals could get thrown against the sides of the cage. The smaller cages make it so they only go a short ways in those situations and don’t get hurt.
