The Animal Protection Society of Durham currently has Jimmy the gerbil and eight of his siblings of various coat colors, all awaiting homes. Gerbils are gentle, highly sociable and great companions for anyone who wants a small pet. They are great with kids because they are more affectionate and friendlier than other types of pet rodents, and they rarely bite. The price tag for adoption is as small as a gerbil – only $5. Come cuddle with one today!

Adoption fees for other animals vary, but the fees include a basic medical exam, spay or neuter surgery, microchip implantation, rabies and other vaccinations, intestinal parasite check, a heartworm test and deworming.

Thanks to our sponsor, new owners of each adopted featured pet will receive a free full day of camp at Camp Bow Wow.

The Animal Protection Society of Durham, located at 2117 E. Club Blvd., is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that has been helping animals in the community since 1970, and has managed the Durham County Animal Shelter since 1990. In addition to county funding, APS relies on donations from individuals and corporations to feed, shelter and provide medical attention for the nearly 7,000 stray, surrendered and abused animals it cares for each year. The shelter is open by appointment only due to COVID-19. For more information, email
