I consider “rescues” to be the taking in of any animal that a) is a surrender that needs a new place to live, b) requires some form of rehabilitation, or c) requires sanctuary from a previously harmful state of living. Please note that I will only take in REPTILES. I am not a veterinarian, so I will not take in sick animals unless they are being completely given up to me. If you have a pet that you want to keep but it is sick, please seek out veterinary care. Also, I am not a registered shelter or adoption center; whatever animals brought to me will stay with me, especially those that require special care. I am always looking for donations (enclosures, lamps, food dishes, totes, etc.), and am almost always open to accepting surrenders, so long as I can properly accommodate the animal. If for any reason I cannot accept your surrender, I will still work with you to find a shelter or sanctuary for your animal.
