Mailed to your mailbox monthly
Hi, I'm Francis!
I live on the Segunda Vida Animal Rescue ranch with our ranch veterinarian, Dr. Hank. He's raised me from the time I was born, so we're best pals. He's fun to hang out with, too, because I get to meet animals from all over the world that come here for his help...Dr. Hank helps animals that need a new home, or if they are sick or hurt, or if they just need something special. (Like Lucy the Ostrich...Dr. Hank made her a pair of special glasses so she could see!)
I look forward to becoming your best pal, too, and I can't wait to share my fun adventure stories with you!
