Adopt Me: Larry the rooster (adopted)

He is looking for a family that has knowledge about rooster care

GuelphToday, in partnership with the Guelph Humane Society, brings you this feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Hi, I’m Larry! Don’t you just love to start the day with a smile? I know I do! I like to start my morning with a cheerful crow. It really is a beautiful song that I sing.

When I’m not performing, I love my special treats of mealworms. I poof up my feathers with excitement when I hear them being in dropped in my dish.

I’m looking for a family that has knowledge about rooster care. Things like how to socialize me, what I like to eat, and the kind of housing that’s best for me. This would make me a very happy and healthy guy.

I could be a great addition to a farm family, and we can have a lot of fun! I’m looking for my new duet partner – could you be the one?

The GHS contactless adoptions have been so successful – they have given over 700 pets a loving #HappyTail during COVID-19! Virtual and/or phone adoption meetings will happen by appointment only.
