HI I’m Rio. My owner gave me up with my cage mate because they said they didn’t have time or money to care for me anymore. I was very sick upon coming to the shelter and was rushed to the vet and had surgery. I had a tumor that was attached to my spleen that was removed. I started doing better after surgery, but then I lost my cage mate to so it’s been a rocky road. So any cheering up would be great.

Some things I like are treats of any kind and noisy toys.

We are thankful here at the shelter for any love you have to offer to a fuzzy for Christmas to make them feel at home here.
