Adoptable Pet of the Week


My name is Lucky. For a time I lived in a cage in a Bay Area research facility. I was spared because they thought my eyes were too small for their testing needs. I am full of energy and have a hunger to explore. After a long day of playing and running through tunnels, I would like to snuggle up with a special forever person who will love and protect me. I’m even litter-box trained and come when called.
