Default Could anyone re-home an axolotl?

Hello everyone,

I've recently had to move apartments, and while I was able to move my axolotl with me just fine, I've noticed that because I live on the third floor my space is often very hot even for me. Although it is winter, leaving windows open doesn't seem to help and I'm unable to keep the tank below 22 Celsius anymore, even with a fan. Very very sadly, I can't afford a chiller and while I'd really love to keep him/her, I don't believe it is in his/her best interest.

I would really like to re-home them to someone who can provide a safer living space. He/she is a juvenile leucistic, about 5 to 6 inches long. If anyone in the Seattle/Tacoma area is willing and able, please let me know. For now I will likely move them to the fridge at around 10 Celsius, so I would be looking to re-home them in the near future.

Here are some pictures of the cutie (taken the other day)

Yes, if to a loving home! I am just not sure of the costs/how you would go about doing that safely!
