A Gecko who wants to Provide You with Insurance — of his Love!


The visit with Laura today brought a delightful surprise in the form of a wee Leopard Gecko.  Small, active and fixed with a permanent smile, this little guy would be a great introduction to the world of owning a reptile. Able to be social or just as content in solitude, this little critter is comfortable being held. A terrarium equipped with the appropriate levels of heat and humidity are required, although it needn’t be very big as he has reached his maximum size. As there is only one vet locally who provides care for reptiles, the staff may be able to be somewhat flexible in terms of this requirement for adoption, particularly in the case of an experienced reptile owner.

Currently, there are many smaller animals seeking adoption from birds, to rats through to reptiles. For more information on these smaller and more individual citizens, please click here. In this moment, the two bearded dragons featured on today’s show are not yet uploaded to the website, however are available for adoption.

Leopard Geckos require some specific needs to be met in the course of your lives together.  For some tips to their support and maintenance please click here.


Currently, the Humane Society is not open to in-person visits and the adoption application must be submitted in advance.  Adoption forms can be accessed online or you can go in person to 962 Second Line East to obtain a paper copy.  Complete the application and submit it to the Humane Society, and then you will be contacted to arrange an in person meeting with your potential new love.

If you are not in a position to take on a pet full-time or are unsure if you can fit a pet into your life, the Humane Society is also recruiting foster homes to assist with caring for pets, on a short-term basis.  For more information on how to become a foster home to a pet in need click here.

Other ways that you can help include making a donation of food items – either kibble or wet food (pate is preferred for cats).  Cash donations are welcomed, of course, and, as a registered charity, the Humane Society is ready to provide a receipt for inclusion with your income tax return.  Also, the Humane Society recently announced the return of their popular volunteer program and would welcome pet-lovers to support their operations!!  Click here to get started!

Lastly, with cold temperatures of Winter upon us, the Humane Society is requesting donations of blankets to provide comfort for the canine population and always are seeking cat toys to entertain the feline set.

So very many pets are ready and waiting to start their new lives in their forever homes with YOU, so don’t hesitate.  Start your application today and bring home the unconditional love and affection that can only come from the bottom of a scaly, feathery, or furry heart!
