Adopt Me

This lovely lady was surrendered with her best friend Bubbles. Together this inseparable pair is looking for a wonderful new place to call home. Sponge is very curious and loves to investigate as you spend time with her. She’s also a climber and will often hop onto the highest point she can mange to gaze upon her surroundings. Sponge is very social with people and invites new friends to come visit her whenever they please, and is happy with being picked up and cuddled as long as its with your hands on her sides and not by her belly. She’s very interested in spending time with people and can be easily bribed with some fresh veggies! Both Sponge and her bestie Bubbles would like to have an enclosure with a good amount of space. Sponge and Bubbles would work best in a patient and loving environment, and are well suited for children that understand the importance of being gentle and calm when interacting with the two love bugs. If Sponge and Bubbles are the perfect match for you and want to bring to your home, please fill out an application through the SPCA website.
