Classroom animals are those that live in DCHS's classroom. They get to meet all kinds of people at the different events they participate in, from tours of the shelter to visiting classrooms and community events!
Ranger Jake the Snake
Ranger Jake is a male adult corn snake who was surrendered to DCHS because his previous owners were unable to care for him. We saw how nice he was and decided he was a great snake to use for education! He loves meeting new people and teaching them that snakes can be friendly and are an important part of the ecosystem!
Spike the Bearded Dragon
Spike is a female adult bearded dragon who was donated to DCHS's classroom. She enjoys laying under her warm heat lamps and snacking on fresh lettuce. Spike likes to go to schools and other events to teach the public about reptiles!
Star the Rat
Star is a female fancy rat that came into the shelter and was up for adoption. Star is grey and white and loves to play. Rats make really great pets and this girl is a joy for campers and visitors alike!
Gizmo and Gadget the Guinea Pigs
Gizmo and Gadget are two male albino guinea pigs. Gizmo is an American satin guinea pig who was surrendered to DCHS and is very curious. Gadget is a rex guinea pig who was found as a stray and loves carrots. Both of these guys love to be held and help teach kids how to care for an animal!
