Qualifications For Adopting An Infant Bennetts Wallaby
The Fall City
Wallaby Ranch is most interested in finding qualified homes for the
infant Wallabies who are born at the Ranch.
There are few, yet important requirements for qualification
to adopt. These
individuals, who are intending to adopt a baby, must be interested
and willing to raise a “baby”.
Infant wallabies are entirely dependent on their mom for
feeding, potty stimulation and entertainment and as such require a
considerable commitment in time and attention for 3 to 4 months as
they gain independence and confidence.
New babies receive six bottles per day as well as their start

must be able to provide housing with an outdoor enclosure, large
enough for their Wallaby to exercise and have access to ample
grazing and browsing area.

extremes of temperature are a must.
Consideration must be given for vigilant attention to the
need to protect your Wallaby from predators, neighborhood dogs and
cats as well.
must be financially capable of providing for proper feeding, housing
and medical attention as needed.

their baby or to finance the personal delivery of their baby to
them. The Fall City
Wallaby Ranch will not ship a bottle baby with other than personal
care. If you are

will provide vehicular transportation (upon arrival in Seattle),
housing and care training to qualified Adoptive Parents for as many
days as is necessary to learn to properly care for their new baby.

We are happy to work with you to determine what may be the
best for your circumstances and on the specifics of how to set up
