My family and I are offering forever homes for unwanted reptiles and amphibians. (Please read this ad to the end before responding!).
I'm open to most types of reptiles etc. Including skinks, uromastyx, geckos, rankins, beardies, ball pythons, Sand boas and more. Species are not too important and neither is gender, as any animals I take in live with us for a loving forever home as pets only, and will not be bred from or sold on, so I will not make a profit from any of them. I do not keep any reptiles in rubs either. They will be treated like family and spoilt rotten! We are firm believers that any animal bought into someone's home should be considered as part of the family, and not as an object or a play thing.
However, I am unable to take in large snakes ie retics etc, any more tegus or large monitors due to the amount of space their set ups require. I am unable to accommodate any more turtles or terrapins either.
We have many pets including many animals we have taken in already over the years including rescues from neglected or abusive homes, and years of animal experience between us, although exotics are mostly my side of things. I previously worked in an independent reptile & aquatic shop and have always had pets of all varieties.
I'm also happy to work with often aggressive or grumpy reptiles too as I have an adult tegu (in photo) who was neglected, seriously ill, abused and never handled before she came to me and I got her puppy tame in just over 6 months, she is now a very much loved member of the family (and spoilt!) and I wouldn't be without her. But please give me a heads up first if the animal in question is known to be aggressive to prevent any unfriendly surprises!
Due to the recent high demand in animals needing homes, I can now ONLY take on animals that come with their set ups. Although I am more than happy to upgrade vivs, heating or lighting equipment etc.
I'm also more than happy to stay in touch with you if you'd like to know how they're doing every now and then, as I understand it can be hard to give up a much loved pet.
I'm open to most animals whether they are retired, old, aggressive, grumpy, fussy eaters, in need of a little extra help weight wise, neglected, or if you simply cannot take care of them anymore.
My animals are vet checked regularly, and receive treatment if and when they need it, so please do not assume this is 'freebie' hunting. I'm offering my services as a forever home for these animals rather than see them dumped or abandoned as so many often are if not worse, these animals deserve a second chance as much as any other animal. Making sure the needs of each animal are met is my priority, and if I do not feel like I can take the very best care of your animal I will not take it on. I'm entirely self funded, I'm not a charity - just a private house, and do not take money for my services, I'm just someone who loves animals and wants to give them the life they deserve.
If you think I might be able to help you then please message me and if I can help you I will. If I'm unable to offer your pet a home myself I may be able to help you find someone who can if you wish.
Please note: I will not recommend any alternative home that will profit from your animals in any way, i.e. No breeders. The majority of these alternative homes will be with people who have had experience with the type of animal in question, or if they haven't, they have thoroughly researched it. I will only recommend alternative homes with people I know personally or know via someone else, through my own personal rehoming network I have put together. This is just so that I know for certain they will go to a good, loving home. Nor will I recommend any home where the animal will be a child's sole responsibility, ie, the parents must be willing to care for it if the child gets bored rather than rehoming it again.
I get a lot of messages from owners in need of help and try my best to reply to all, but if you are asking me to take an animal I've already mentioned above that I cannot take, or if you are further away than the distance I've mentioned below and wanting me to take your animal, you're unlikely to get a reply. If your message does not get a reply within 3 days, please assume that I'm currently full or do not have any space for that particular animal at the time of your message (I promise I'm not trying to be rude, I just get a lot of messages and try to focus on those I can help!) If you would like me to help with an alternative home if I have unavailable space, please mention so in your message. Any alternative homes I recommend are generally within locality to me too.
Must be within 15 miles of BS40 (Chew Valley) area, as I have to rely on someone else for transport.
Thanks for taking the time to read this :)
Please note: We have had multiple break ins in the past and had animals stolen, for this reason we do not give 'tours' of the animals at our property, please respect the fact we need to keep our animals and our property safe.
