Meet Atticus the Finch

Atticus the FinchIt's not all about dogs and cats at the OHS! Meet Atticus, a beautiful male Gouldian finch.  He arrived at the OHS in late December with an infected toe.

Fortunately, our in-house clinic was able to amputate the dead part of his toe. After finishing his prescribed antibiotics, our Adoption Centre staff found him a new home.  We wish all the best to our feathered friend!
