HISTORY: Motley Zoo Animal Rescue was asked to find LITTLE EARTHQUAKES a great forever family and that is exactly what we plan to do! 

NOTES FROM FOSTER HOME: Little Earthquakes has cerebellar hypoplasia, which is a neurological condition. She has a severe version and is just learning to eat on her own. She does use a litterbox, but is not always consistent. She does try to walk and can stand for a few seconds, but her back legs are stiff and she will flop to her side. She does crawl and climb effectively, and would do best on carpeted or rugged floors in order to protect her head when she falls over. She is a playful little girl and loves playing with toys, which we place in a stuffed bed with her. She can be demanding when it is time for her to eat. She is given a mixture of canned food and water to ensure that she is getting enough hydration. She is a sweet chatty little girl who likes to be held. 

Motley Zoo Animal Rescue is a volunteer run, foster based, 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization based in Redmond, WA. Motley Zoo does not have a traditional shelter location, but instead, utilizes private foster homes which care for the animals individually, in a home environment, until a "furever" home is found.

Motley Zoo also runs "Rock Star Treatment" Dog Daycare & Training Studio in Redmond, WA which is a day-use facility and does not hold kennels of adoptable animals. The dogs there are owned animals who come to the facility while their families are at work and school so they can play and socialize in a safe environment. We dub this service our "Year-round" fundraising program which helps us support our rescue animals and the $15,000/ month vet bills we incur. This Studio location does have an Adoptable Cat Lounge, where cats may live until adoption, which is the exception to any aforementioned rules.

Please email and request an adoption application so we can get you started on the journey to finding a new, furry friend! Once you have been approved to adopt, then we can set up a meeting with the animal you have been matched with.
