Pet of the Month
Our Pet of the Month for April
is Timon and Pumbaa,
two adult castrated male ferrets. They came into our care together and have been with us since January 2013. Both Timon and Pumbaa were in very poor condition when they first came into our care. Both ferrets are very active and playful and are two of our longest small animal residents.
Why not have a look
- could you give them a home?
