Q: Getting a small pet

Where is a safe place to get an animal like a guinea pig or a chinchilla if my local humane society doesn't have any? I'm not getting any from petstores. I just need to know where is safe, I don't need to know anything else please.

you can check petfinder.com and search for local ones and PetSmart and PetCo are petstores but they are more responsible than many.

You may can find one in your local paper - but I know they wouldn't guarantee it's health.
But maybe they are just willing to give away to good home.
Yep, alot of pet stores don't care about the animals - just the money.

I don't know where you live, but there are usually rescue groups for both of those animals. Check with your local shelterand ask if they know. You can also look online for rescue groups. Check this site also.
