Scout is a 5 year old wolf/dog hybrid and is currently dealing with stenosis of the spine. He has the most amazing attitude for an animal that is part wolf. He is friendly to all and enjoys a good game of tug-o-war and long walks at Vasquez Rocks. Scout came from the movie industry where they realized that he had a medical issue and needed to have a specialized home.

(From boredpanda.com)When animals are sold into the black market, they lose their freedom, and in many heartbreaking cases, their lives. A sanctuary in Agua Dulce, California, has teamed up with a Los Angeles-based photographer to showcase the beauty and strength of the lucky animals they've managed to save from this heinous cycle of captivity, and the resulting photoshoot is positively 'wild.'
Where the Wild Things Are is a stunning collaboration between Animal Tracks and Natasha Wilson of De Anastacia Photography, and features various animals intended for sale as pets on the Californian black market, including an African serval, South American capuchin monkeys, and even an Australian kangaroo. The magnificent creatures are posed next to models wearing colour-coordinated outfits, fronting nature-inspired backdrops that remind one of the habitats from which these animals were so cruelly plucked. Despite the horrors they have experienced, in Wild Things, each animal appears dignified and completely at peace.

Monzo is one of the last remaining animals of the original Animal Tracks family. He is an 11 year old African Serval, the mid size cat of Africa. He was confiscated by Fish and Game from someone who had him illegally. He is a sweet old man, always looking for some love, and is a great ranch ambassador for his species.

Cheshire the Bengal Cat is now approximately 11 years old and has had several owners in his lifetime. The last one was a busy person and Cheshire needed more of the owners time. He started to do negative things like poop and pee where he pleased, shred curtains and bedding and even attack other pets. This is a common story for animals that are part domestic and part exotic.

Jake and Cami are cockatoos, and both previously owned pets. The pet owners, for various reasons, could no longer care for them. These two are some of the nicest cockatoos you will ever meet. They love having lunch with the employees of Animal Tracks and enjoy musical groups like Queen and Blue Swede. The love talking, singing and even screaming.

Porcupine Quillamenia (pictured) and her husband Al Sharpton have been happily cohabiting at Animal Tracks since 2008. They were surplus animals at another facility, meaning, this facility already had enough of their own and were trying to help find homes for others. Quillamenia and Al like to come out for long walks and visit the monkeys who will often save their own monkey chow just for them.
