Make your resolution to laugh more, cuddle more, and love more!  We have a number of specials that will make it that much easier for you to adopt a sweet suggie, whether you're new to gliders or want to introduce another friend into your marsupial menagerie.  If you're looking for a light colored glider, the "White Knights and Silver Belles" promotion shown above is a great place to start.  Do you want a classic colored cutie at an amazing price?  Well then, my friend, keep reading...

Pouch Pals
Starting in January, we have a new special category of "Pouch Pals" who just can't wait to meet you.  This category includes both males and females available at a special price, and if you're looking to pick up a pair (or more) of these guys and gals, the deal gets even sweeter!  Click here for more information.

For a limited time, gliders in this category are available for the following price:

Males: $129 (includes neutering)
Females: $149
Each additional glider of the same gender: $100

That's right, if you're looking to add another sugar glider of the same gender as your first selection in this category, it's only $100 more!You can add as many additional gliders as you'd like for this special price.  Neutering is included in the adoption price for the male gliders, and you can read on for more information about male gliders and neuters. (Please note that regular shipping prices still apply for this special.)

New Years Weight Loss Program for Male Sugar Gliders - A Note on Neuters

When choosing a sugar glider as a pet, one of the first and biggest decisions people make regarding their new friend is whether to get a male or female glider.  Opinions and preference vary, with some loving the girls while others think that boys are more affectionate.  While we here at The Pet Glider think both genders are equally awesome, we understand people have their favorites.  For those that are considering a masculine male marsupial as a companion, we recommend neutering.  Boys do have a stronger scent than females, but this goes away with neutering.  In addition, the traditional "bald spot" on a male's forehead will either be greatly reduced or will not develop at all!  This is on top of the generally calmer demeanor found in neutered males.

The procedure is fast, safe, and performed by a local veterinarian with a great deal of experience. Neutering for a single male glider is $49, and $75 for two males.  If you're looking to have more males neutered (and don't worry, we won't tell them who is responsible), please let us know and we'll be happy to make arrangements.

We take our gliders to Dr. Dan Jordan of Animal Avian Hospital of The Village. He is an award-winning exotic veterinarian with years of experience with sugar gliders, and we know he treats our gliders right!  If you're in the Houston area, please check out their website, linked above, for more information.
