BOSTON, Mass. (WLNE) — The MSPCA at Nevins Farm said their busy-spell continues with the arrival of new exotic pets.

Officials said Monday they received more than a dozen sugar gliders and two hedgehogs after their owner was experiencing medical issues.

Nevins Farm doesn’t usually see these close relatives of the possum come to their care but they said they’re dedicated to helping them find their forever homes.

The MSPCA at Nevins Farm shared these photos of sugar gliders in need of adoption.

Director of operations at Nevins Farm, Meaghan O’Leary said many people don’t consider sugar gliders as pets but for the right adopters, they can be great companions.

“They’re unique and fun to take care of,” O’Leary said. “They’re also incredibly endearing, but they aren’t for everyone,” she continued.

Officials said sugar gliders are omnivores that need to eat a combination of fruits, vegetables, insects and nectar-based foods.
