Feel Good Fur-day Adoption Stories (sign up here!) don’t always involve “fur” – after all, the Tri-County Humane Society places reptiles in homes, too! And geckos aren’t just good at being insurance pitchmen – they can be great companions. This Feel Good (No) Fur-day is about a 1-year-old female gecko who was called “Obstruct” when she was with us in mid-March; she found her new home in less than a week! She is now named Poppy.
“I have never cared for a reptile before, but it was love at first sight, and I was ready for the challenge. The staff members at TCHS were very helpful giving me tips and general knowledge to set me up for success. Poppy is still working on hand-training with me, but she loves to roam around and explore. She enjoys basking in the heat and munching on yummy crickets. This spunky girl always has a smile on her face!”
“Reptiles and amphibians are sometimes thought of as primitive, dull and dimwitted. In fact, of course, they can be lethally fast, spectacularly beautiful, surprisingly affectionate and very sophisticated.” David Attenborough
