Briar, sugar glider
Briar is a female sugar glider being cared for at MN Pocket Pet Rescue.
From Briar's current caretaker:
Briar is friendly toward humans, chatty, playful, energetic and readily allows you to pick her up. She enjoys foraging toys, running on the wheel and cuddling with cage mates. Briar is of unknown gender, but is believed to be female. Her pouch is either underdeveloped or before she was found and brought to the vet she had been neutered. This will not affect Briar's health in any way, but they should always be kept with females or neutered males.

Maisy, bunny rabbit

Maisy has all her shots. Maisy is a special needs pet, so please inquire about her specific care requirements.
From Maisy's current caretaker:
Maisy is inquisitive, friendly toward humans, friendly toward other animals, playful and energetic. She is partially blind. We think she can see light sources and possibly fuzzy objects, but struggles every once in a while with things like finding dropped treats or hands moving to pet her and she doesn't see them coming. Typically, you don't even notice she has a hard time, she definitely doesn't let it slow her down. She gets around new places with ease and is very curious and sweet.
