    We here at Wilderness acres snake Ranch do have lots of room for any reptile or other pet that needs a home. Any reptile or pet taken in under rescue will not be sold or traded! We may try to find a home for the reptile or animal but there will be no adoption fees charged. Maybe a shipping fee and only the actual cost of shipping will be charged, In some cases we will pay the shipping fee just to get the rescued animal a good home. The only thing we charge for here is our sales of baby cornsnakes that we raise. I will on the 17th of this month post pics of my place and the animal tanks and cages so if anyone is wondering will there givin up pet have a good home will be able to see that our care is number 1. Im not here to make any money only to find good homes for our rescues and if we cant do that we will keep them ourselfs. Right at present I have a rescued Leopard gecko male that is blind and I will not adopt him out as it would be a personal strain on some one to have to hand feed him daily but I have gotten attached to him and would definately miss him if he left. I am 56 years old and disabled so this endeavor is my life and its what keeps me going and gives me such pleasure to be there for a pet that needs a home. We will also accept any special needs pets. I have a retired veterinarian who just lives a few miles away and has offered his services for free because of the work that I try to do here. I am sorry for such a long post but I felt I needed to put all my cards on the table. Thanks Jimi

    That's awesome that you have a vet that can help out. I know it's usually a huge expense to most shelters and probably the main reason many of them have to shut down. Give your vet friend a pat on the back for me.:) Keep up the good work.

    I need to be able to PM you if possible, I think I'm going to have to give up my green iguana to someone that can take care of him properly. Or just email me if you need info, it should all be in my profile.

    I just wanted to mention as I have in a earlier post any animals or reptiles that are taken in under adoption or rescue are adopted out if possible and if they cant be for any reason we keep them and give them our best with lots of lovin and care. There is never an adoption fee charged!!! Only certain criteria must be met to make the sure the adoptee is going to a good home. I live on 2.2 acres and have plenty of room for goats, horses, etc. The only thing I charge for are the snakes that I raise not for snakes taken in on adoption or rescue. Thank you all very much Jimi

    Thank you all very much. Im just an old softie when it comes to pets and I feel we owe it to them to provide a good home and life for them when the owners cant due to sitiations beyond their control or from owners who dont care about the quality of life of their pets. I am disabled and this is now my lifes work and I love it. I have to give credit to my wife for her acceptance of these pets in the house but she loves them just as much as I do. Jimi
