AGS member Lindsay Barnes of Blackwater Gerbils has unfortunately lost her home in Hurricane Harvey. She, her family, and all her gerbils made it out safely, but there’s too many of them for one small camper trailer!

If you are in the Houston area and looking to adopt, please contact Lindsay. Since gerbils are social creatures she only adopts them out in pairs, and will give preference to those who are already knowledgeable about gerbil care. She can be reached by email at:
