We take in every animal regardless of age, breed or medical history
Native to warmer environments, degus are a trendy pet in Florida. However, it’s uncommon for them to appear in Northern Colorado. In the past five years, Larimer Humane Society has cared for only a few of these small mammals.
Like other animals, degus are known to bond to one another. In an effort to keep sweet Raj and Fluffball as happy as can be, the pair was adopted together to a young mother and her two daughters. This diurnal duo can now be found actively burrowing and nesting the day away. A fun fact: one goji berry a day keeps the degu doctor away!
You can support exotic pets by donating on Colorado Gives Day. Help us continue to save lives and give homeless animals like Raj and Fluffball their second chances at love.
