We were founded on April 24, 2009 by Jinna Adamson and are located in the heart of Denver, Colorado at 2186 S Holly St, Ste 6, Denver, CO 80222. An article published in the Spring 2011 editions of the Mayfair Neighbors Inc. and Glendale Cherry Creek Chronicle details how and why Jinna decided to dedicate her life to these small and often forgotten animals.
Our Mission at Apple Wood is to provide rehabilitation, shelter, and proper care to all small exotic mammals in need, while also focusing on their mental health to help ensure rehoming success. We are a no kill sanctuary.
As of December 2013, we have placed 128 small animals into their fur-ever homes with 54 of those placements happening within the last year. We are growing very fast and are happy
Why should you adopt?
small animals can make wonderful pets, and rather than buying a small animal for sale or finding a small animal breeder, adopting a small animal from an animal shelter or rescue organization is the perfect way to add a small animal to your family. Keep in mind, there is a lot you will need to know when you provide a home for a small animal. You will need to learn what to feed them, how much exercise or attention your small animal needs, and many other important things about how to house and care for a small animal. There are different types of small animals including Chinchilla, Degu, Ferret, Gerbil, Guinea Pig, Hamster, Hedgehog, Mouse, Prairie Dog, Rat, Skunk, and Sugar Glider.
