Meet Tater Tot
Meet Tater Tot! Tater is a shy but sweet lady that would thrive in a calm and quiet environment without the presence of children or other animals. Tater would do best in a home with a patient and understanding human counterpart that is able to give her the time she may need to adjust to her new environment. If you believe your home may be the perfect quiet and calm sanctuary that Tater has been waiting for, please send in your online adoption application now!
