Astrid's Info...

I am a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, and not good with kids.

Astrid's Story...
Astrid is an approximately 1 1/2 to 2 year old female leopard gecko who arrived with moderate-to-severe MBD (metabolic done disease) which had caused a softened jaw, irregular arm position, and occasional tremors. While Astrid will never be "normal" with a strict calcium regime she has made tremendous progress and is ready to find her forever home.

Given her weakened bone structure, we prefer Astrid to go to a home without small children who may accidentally harm her. She also needs a dedicated owner willing to keep up with her liquid calci-blast dosing (every other day to every third day) and who doesn't mind tong feeding (she happily snatches bugs from tongs). Astrid can be a little sassy about being picked up but calms down quickly and is happy to explore when out of her enclosure.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Astrid, a Holbrook Gecko was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Gecko for sale in Holbrook, or seeking a Gecko from a breeder in Holbrook.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Holbrook already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Holbrook breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Gecko breeders who help with Gecko rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Holbrook paves the way for another one to be saved.
