Adoptable Others

Lions and tigers*, and birds, and hamsters...

Occasionally a loveable “other” makes its way to us. But no matter the species, we look for fun, caring homes for them too. Look here for the latest, pocket pal, aquatic acquaintance, or aviary ally up for adoption. *No lions or tigers have ever located us. Birds and hamsters? Oh my, yes!
