The average reptile retailer will commonly only purchase “perfect” animals for reselling. As a result, any animal with any big or small physical or neurological imperfection is often left behind without the chance to find a home.
The impact of selling perfect-only means that without a place to go most of these imperfect animals are often euthanized due to lack of space.
Unlike cats and dogs there is no place to send these reptiles and amphibians to be adopted out to loving homes. Where they can live out long successful lives getting the one on one care that they need.
Our mission is to bring attention to this issue and fight the stigma that imperfect means “bad”. All the animals are in good health and despite looking a bit different are still able to make good pets. They are still able to make you smile, and they are still able to bring you joy.
We do not believe in euthanizing healthy animals just because they have flaws. Instead we turn to good hearted people to adopt and offer these imperfect animals a chance to live their best life, with the love and care that they deserve.
After all, are any of us perfect?
Why the adoption fee?
Our adoption fees are in place to help us care for as many imperfect animals as we can until they find their forever home. Fees cover nutrition, housing, medication and the tables at expos.
How do I adopt?
Below are a few categories of animals that are available currently, and a few featured ones as well. The animals are available ONLINE ONLY, as they are cared for at an offsite facility. If one catches your eye, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
