Adopting Animals From Overflowing Animal Shelters

I gave a free acupuncture session to my elderly neighbor as a house call. Every time I have had surgery she has brought me fresh produce in lovely baskets.

I am going to adopt a grumpy chinchilla from a rescue I foster for. I still have foster hamsters. Sadly, the rescue is overloaded with surrenders. People don't want their pandemic animal friends anymore. The rescue has had to stop accepting any more animals as they are so full.

My adoption will free up one space. Here is Chayra, wondering where her raspberry is.
