Dixie

(5/10/16) We have 2 bouncy baby bunnies looking for a home! They were born here 5/10/16 while their mom was being treated for an eye infection.There were originally 10 babies born, but only 5 survived past the first week. Three have already been adopted, one has gone to live at Jefferson Feed in the hopes of finding a home through them, and there is 1 girl left. Dixie is already spayed. The babies are learning to be handled, but do enjoy a good head scratch. They are working on becoming litter box trained as well. They are going to be larger bunnies, averaging about 5-7 pounds when full grown. That just means there is more of them to love! Come meet these energetic babies today. Update 12/6/16: These young rabbits are still looking for a home! They have a ton of energy, and will need lots of room to run around in. They all enjoy chewing on their toys, and are fun to play with and watch run circles around the room. Lets get these guys home for Christmas! Update 1/6/17: Levi was adopted! That leaves Dixie as the last of the fab 5. She is patiently waiting for a new home to love on her and provide lots of room for exercise.

 

Bella

Pet Adoptions in Metairie, LA

(11/21/16) Bella is a 2 year old spayed female Flemish Giant mixed breed rabbit. She was brought to us very overweight and in need of loving. We have switched her diet to a healthier, balanced diet for rabbits, consisting of 70% timothy grass hay, 20% hay based pellets (with no corn, seeds, or grains), and a handful of leafy green vegetables daily. She is already starting to slim down and moves around easier. She is very sweet, and would love a permanent home where she can relax and be loved on. She is about 7-8 pounds, so is a larger bunny, but has more to love! Call us today if you want to visit with Ms. Bella. Update 12/19/16: Bella is settling in and becoming a bit nippy when startled. She will need an experienced rabbit owner who can help teach her boundaries and rules. She still loves being pet, but not always picked up.

 

 

Gabby

Pet Adoptions in Metairie, LA

(8/1/16) Gabby is an 18 year old female White Fronted Amazon. She was adopted from us in 2011, but her recent owners had begun to have serious health problems, so had to surrender her back to us. She is friendly and willingly comes out of her cage to hang out. She is fully weaned on to Zupreem pellets, and is up to date on her Polyoma Virus vaccine. Prior to 2011 she had some liver problems, but went through a full course of treatment and her more recent blood work shows no current issues. Even though she is small, she is still an Amazon parrot, and needs someone experienced with birds to adopt her. If you are interested in meeting her and giving her a third chance at a great home, please call us today!

Presto

(10/7/16) Presto is a 2-3 year old white dove. He was found in the summer of 2015, and we couldn't find his original owner. He was adopted in October 2015, but was returned recently due to the new owners not having enough time for him. He is very sweet and gentle, and makes a soothing cooing noise during the day. If anyone is interested in a unique bird, Presto is the one for you!

Nouveau

(9/13/16) Nouveau is a 2-3 year old male Yellow Bellied Slider. He is very friendly and comes up to the front of the tank to say hi. He is used to living indoors and having food provided to him, so he can not be released. These sliders have the potential to get large (dinner plate size) so need a large tank with proper heating, UV bulbs, and filters. He may get along with other turtles of similar size if you are interested.

Harvey

Pet Adoptions in Metairie, LA

(11/28/16) Harvey is a handsome male cockatiel, about 2 years old. He was dumped at a local pet store, and brought to us by their employees to help find him a home. He is a little nervous around hands, but is learning to step up. He does love to hang out on your shoulder for a while. He loves his bell toys and is starting to come out of his shell and whistle for us. He is up to date on his Polyoma virus vaccines, and we are working on weaning him to a pelleted diet. If you want to give this gorgeous boy a new home, come by to visit him today!
