Are you looking to heal someone's soul as much as they'll heal yours? Well as it goes, Apollo is the Greek God of healing and our boy needs someone special to finally give him the life he deserves, and heal once and for all.

Apollo, known affectionately as Polly,  initially came to us at GAP in 2018 and spent some time in a home before landing back here in 2019 by no fault of his own. Despite being one of our longest residents and a big sweetheart, he is yet to find his perfect family.

Apollo likes lots of neck scratches, toys, WALKS! (the best thing ever!), lots of treats and he definitely wants his own armchair! Polly is quite experienced at pet life. He is an expert lounge lizard and really just wants to get out of the kennel environment once an for all and back into the cushy comfort his highness is accustomed to.

Apollo doesn't much enjoy being on his own and would like a home where someone can keep him company - Be it a stay-at-home human or a canine sibling. (Pending a lengthy doggy meet & greet). He loves being inside just as much as he does outside, so doesn't necessarily need a huge backyard, but some grass would be grey-t. Apollo will not suit a home with children or cats. Apollo is also on a low dose, affordable behavioural medication to help him through the upset of so much change (enquire for more info)
