Once an application has been approved, a signed, legal adoption contract is required. To see what you will be agreeing to, see the sample contract here. Not every animal is approved for breeding, and special requirements exist if the animal is adopted by an educational institution.  



Shipping fees, when necessary, are in addition to the adoption fee, and are dependent on the weight of the animal involved. Shipping is done by FedEx overnight.  Please understand that while I do my very best in ensuring the safety of any shipped animal, that things beyond my control can and will happen from time to time. Any losses are at the risk of the adoptive party. To date, I have had only one loss, and it was not due to poor packing.

The beginning of the school year is always a busy time for me, as I am a middle school science teacher in my “real” life. Come to think of it, ALL year is busy for me! LOL

After some much-needed adoptions, I am finally catching my breath and can be grateful for not having over-stocked cages.  Still, I am close to capacity, but at least not over crowded.

This year seems to be the year of the bearded dragon. I’m getting more requests to take them than any other species! Please adopt!

If you are interested in adopting any of these animals, please submit a separate application FOR EACH SPECIES. Remember that some rescues may need minor TLC. Most are fine. Any known issues are shown on the info page for that animal. I do not knowingly adopt out animals that need more than basic TLC.
