Exclamation This is heartbreaking! Can anyone help!!!??

My friend just sent me this link to someone who wants to get rid of two turtles and a guinea pig! These animals are obviously neglected and NEED a home.This girl is located in Newfoundland.I really wanna get those animals out of there,but I don't want anymore turtles and as much as I want a GP,I have NOTHING I need for one.

The pictures are heartbreaking and makes me angry to see that people could do such things...

HELP!

& that cage the pig's in,thats the same size my mice were in first! WHAT is wrong with that person??

I am not a BK member,for some reason I could never sign up.My friend always lets me know about ads on there tho,as sometimes ppl wanna get rid of rats and post there.

I know...I cannot believe how she could let this happen!There is NO excuse.And look how dirty those enclosures are! I feel sooo bad! I do not want more turtles and as much as I want a GP,it is not a good time and the cage I HAD for a GP is now turned into a rat cage.I asked Steph if she could take the turtles or knows anyone who will...so we shall see.I have my fingers crossed.

My heart breaks for those creatures.
Would it have killed missus to get a large bin for those turtles?
You can get a large bin for cheaper than a 10gal at Wal-Mart!
& WHY didn't she make a cage using cubes?? ugh!
WiSH I could take in all three & personally give her a piece of my mind.With the condition those animals are in,I bet it's not a case of allergies,it's probably case of boredom.OR if her dad's sick it's because he's being exposed to FiLTH! You are right.They aren't even clean!

What do you think the chances are that she can bring them like half way or so to me if I take them?
I know,I'll be like...sheesh,bankrupt then with the buying of the bird cage& the upgrade for the mice,but I could get a large bin for the turts & I can make a cube cage for the GP...
should I email& ask? & Deal with dad's ever peeved-offyness of me having my apartment pretty full as is??... I DiD say I wanted even more turts& I was going to get the GP before but it died so Deon obviously didn't need the home then So,what do you think? Worth a shot?

Vanilla Rat - would it be okay to cross post this on the guinealynx and guinea pig cage forum? Or maybe you could post it there?

Who could do that to a living thing? They can't even move!


ETA: I couldn't wait, I cross posted it. I wish I could do something to help, im just so far away.

eeewww the turtle water is sooo skunky, i bet they'd die soon if it's not changed, like man, fill the bath tub and let them swim or simething.

I emailed her Lisa.I wanted to see if she can somehow help get them out here to me because I'm at a real disadvantage being hours away,but seriously,the thought of those animals like that was making me cry.Don't even look like those turts have proper lighting!

P.S. Can you even house frogs or fish in those kits? Or are they generally pointless to even buy ?

I think it's nice of you to cross post! I'm sure the animals will appreciate it!

I emailed the girl.I'm hoping I can save these animals.
I have spare cages,but I want to build a big cube cage for the guinea pig,& if the girl really can help get them out to me I'm going to head to Wal-Mart to get something good for the turts to live in so on arrival they can be out of that aquarium!

Melissa...any replies?

I wish I could take them and as you know have wanted a GP since forever.I had a cage and everything,but turned it into a rat cage.If I knew there would be a horrible case like this coming my way,I wouldn't of turned it to a ratty cage.

Those animals NEED out of there!

Thanks Amber for cross posting...I dunno how to do it,so I am glad you done it!
