• Salt and Pepper are two-to-three-month-old male gerbils who like to run and play, eat and sleep, and do all the things gerbils are prone to do. If you think you might like a pet at home, but you don’t want the responsibility that comes with owning a dog or cat, gerbils can be somewhat less worrisome and easier to care for, and they’re super cute little bundles of hair and fun as well. Come visit Salt and Pepper.
• Rabbits! There are several furry little bunny rabbits on hand at the shelter right now, both male and female. Most are fuzzy and white, with some of those adding some spots along the way, but there is also a big, friendly, two year old, male, brown rabbit named Wanderer who would love to go home with someone soon. If you like rabbits, you need to visit the shelter soon, and make room for new additions.
• Rieko is a sweet, little fella with a jet black coat and a big heart. He loves people, loves being held, and loves playing and having fun. He is six weeks old, very active and playful, and very open to being a part of your home and family. Pay him a visit!
