That's good! Don't feel like your taking handouts or anything, it really is for the good of the little guy :(

Well, I still have the ad up... because someone who is more experienced, and most of all, more able, should take her someone who is willing to actually take her to the vet... I've always hated accepting help (blame it on my family xD)

Think of it as accepting help for the piggies, not for you. If I didn't live on the other side of the world, I would offer whatever I could. Is there anywhere you can report the previous owners with what you've told us? An RSPCA branch or somesuch?
I would call that electricity company and raise hell til they acknowledge their own rudewordishness and give you some time.

I hope everything works out for you!

Yikes! Sorry to everything you've gone through thus far. I understand the money issue. However, with vets that are still money-hungry you could surrender the poor thing to the vet in the hopes they fix her up and adopt her out. One of the staff might take her. Staff get sick discounts. My cousin worked at the vet here and people sometimes surrendered small animals (before we had a rescue). The small animals would be fixed up and adopted by staff.
Also, they might take payment plan for you if they know you took the GP's in with a good heart but realise one is suffering. Even euthanasia for small animals can be pricey, unfortunately. It's not a needle to the forearm vein. Rabbits and GP's are gassed then have lethal injection to the heart ... I know because I had to gently let go of my suffering bunny a couple years ago. It's a hard thing to watch but it's the safest method for them. Rats and hamsters and things are simply gassed all the way.. Ask about it anyhow, it might make you more comfortable with the idea if that's the route you have to take.
Call your electricity supplier too and ask wth?! While you have a legal obligation to keep up on payments, they have a legal obligation to keep you heated!! lol
I understand your frustration. Hope you're okay today!!

Man I wish you lived in Ohio. I have an old country vet that I adore. I had a puppy I saved and I took him to him with no appointment and he checked him out and gave him wormer for free since it was an emergency. He only charges 35 to 55 dollars for euthanizing cats and dogs. He's a wonderful vet. It's to bad they all aren't like him.

hopefully she gets it back soon, and the guineas are okay.
