4. Live happily furever after!
***We often receive many applications for an available animal. We do our best to respond, although are not always able to respond to all applicants. We will reach out to the approved adopter.
Meet the gorgeous Rose Nylund (named for a character played by the late, great, Betty White)!
Rose is a cautious girl. She was found in a box by a good samaritan who noticed her living in their back yard with her babies. She was very nervous of being handled by people when she arrived, but has been improving every day. She is gaining confidence and spending more time exploring her enclosure rather than hiding away. She is will need a home that will continue to build her trust and provide her with plenty of love and enrichment. She is looking to be adopted with her daughter Sue Ann Nivens as they are tightly bonded.
If you are interested in adopting Rose Nylund and Sue Ann Nivens, please fill out our rodent adoption application and send it to the Surrey Education and Adoption Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org
