Alex
Alex

We currently have 2 corn snakes for adoption! Alex is the first one who is much brighter in coloration and Charlie is the second one who is a darker morph. Both are very healthy and great eaters but have quite a feisty personality. Charlie is easier to handle than Alex but both will still need patient owners since they didn't have much socialization previous to coming to the rescue.

Diki
Diki

Diki is a very large Savannah Monitor that we have for adoption! He was very sick and his owners could no longer care for him so they were unable to pay his vet bill. The pet hospital contacted me and I stepped in to take over the bill and nurse him back to health. He still has neurological problems that prevent him from walking completely normal but he gets around just fine!

Chloe

This sweet lady would love a quiet home and would do great as an only dog or one of few. She prefers to dine alone and shows signs of some food aggression in bowl sharing. She is a loving dog and will bond quickly. She does not like dogs in her space but lived well with one littler dog. She is quiet and misses her past life very much as well her old owner misses her. Due to a very sad medical condition Chloe and her brother had to be given up. She is not good with cats.

Kyra
Kyra

Kyra is a beautiful and loving friendly dog who gets along with dogs of all sizes at the rescue. She does have resource guarding issues so should be fed alone and given treats alone. That behavior can be trained out of her and monitored. She is quiet and a very nice dog to walk on leash. Like the young dog she is she has lots of energy but when left alone does great, no digging or barking or separation issues noticed. A guess on the breed mix is Lab and Doberman.

Axle
Axle

Axle has extensive obedience and recall training, walks beautifully on leash, and is a big, sensitive sweetheart. He is, however, what we call a "project" dog: he needs someone who can lead him through his fear and discomfort so he continues to consistently make good choices. His ideal home would be an active one without any children or other pets.

Mr. B

Mr. B came to us years ago, with filed down teeth, a jaw that’s been broken several times, and serious reactivity around other animals. Now, he is just a very relaxed, sweet old boy (about 10 years old now), who loves nothing more than soaking up affection and sunshine. He loves people and kids, but needs to be an only pet.
