Somewhere in this great nation is a top-secret government agency in charge of providing aid to America's nonhuman citizenry.

They're not our country's best nor our country's brightest, but to all the lost and lonely creations of misguided science wandering the wild places of this country, they are a beacon of minimum-wage hope. This is their story.
