You wanna see fun? Watch Tyson and our small animal coordinator play “tug of war.” It’s not your traditional game of tug: Cara sits in a rolling chair holding one end of the rope and Tyson pulls her all around our office space with the other end. Cara’s laughing hysterically and Tyson would be, too—except then he’d drop the rope. This isn’t a scene we could have imagined when we first met him back in November. Tyson arrived at HSCC a scaly mess: he had a gross skin condition that left him covered in sores and partially hairless. He was quite under-socialized, to boot—terrified and shut down. Now, he sports a gorgeous glossy brindle coat, and his inner clown has emerged. When you watch Tyson play, you realize that he’s having enough fun now to make up for all of that time spent feeling yucky. Wouldn’t you like to help this young guy live his new life full to bursting?

We’re talkin’ ‘bout Willis. We’ve been crazy about this pudgy monkey since he arrived. He loves to kiss ears (wet Willis?), snuggle, romp and play. With all that energy and the right diet, he’ll lose his muffin top in no time! If you’ve already got the winter blues, beat cabin fever with this loyal companion. You won’t be able to remember life without him.
