Our young groundhogs Frisco and Fiona, came to us from another facility when they were just a few weeks old.  They quickly became fast friends and have now moved into new spacious quarters.  Groundhogs are the largest member of the squirrel family and are intelligent little builders underground.  In fact, the very first thing they did when they moved into their new quarters was to start digging!

Also known as a woodchuck, these prolific and industrious little fellows are found all across North America.  In the wild, they hibernate each year, but here in Southern California, they are active all year round.  This makes them perfect for Our Big Backyard education program.

Your adoption will help keep these busy builders occupied with furniture items for their habitat.

Adoptions are for one year and include:

  • An adoption certificate
  • A 4×6 photo of your animal
  • A biography and photo of your animal
  • A fact sheet on your animal’s species
  •  2 updates during the year about your animal

Please Note: Adoption fees are not tax deductible.
