I'm sorry, but I don't know of anywhere that has an opening for an iguana. Iguanas
are the species most often turned into rescue, and the species LEAST adopted from
rescue. This leaves reptile rescues with a major problem. At the time I was placing
iguanas, it often took 18-
Your best bet is to find the time and space for your iguana. This may not be easy, and I understand that for some folks, it may not be possible at all.
The alternatives are:
1) Place a newspaper ad and screen prospective adopters.
2) Give it to a friend/family member.
3) Put flyers up at your local vets/pet stores.
4) Humane euthanasia (done by a vet, not at home.)
5) Retain your iguana until I can place it.
Consider that in options 1-
1) Iguanas size, age, and gender (if known)
2) Current diet (be specific -
3) Current caging situation
4) Disposition -
5) Health issues -
6) A digital picture to post, along with the name of the iguana (if it has one).
Please realize that even with this new avenue of finding homes, it may still take a while, especially if your iguana has behavior or medical issues.
PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE OF MY TIME -
While I am not requiring a donation for this service, I certainly accept them to help defray my time and efforts to assist you.
It is with great regret that I make these suggestions to folks who normally wouldn't even consider euthanasia; in fact, I have had many nasty responses to doing so. I'm sorry to have to be so blunt, but it's the only way I can stress to iguana owners the dire position that reptile rescues are in with regards to iguanas. Moreover, the fate of the countless iguanas whose owners seek to find them "better homes" is almost never the outcome that the owners claim to want for them. I hope you give this serious thought and that you are able to make the best decision for you and your pet.
