 LONG ISLAND, NY REPTILE RESCUE!

Long Island, N.Y. Reptile & Amphibian Rescue


Hello. We are a Reptile/Amphibian rescue service dedicated to saving unwanted, abandoned, injured, abused or sick animals in the Long Island, N.Y. area. We are always looking for people who are interested in helping out. Experience with reptiles is a must. We rescue animals, house them, treat them if necessary and literally bring them "back to life." We then either adopt these animals out, or keep them in our own care. We have a good amount of space to house animals and will be acquiring more in the near future. This is a non-profit organization, and we are working on becoming a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization.

We care for animals a great deal and are always looking for Reptiles/Amphibians in need of a good home. This project is newly launched, so please help out anyway you can!!! It will be greatly appreciated. Rescue organizations for these animals on Long Island are slim to none. Please help.

We have help rescued: Bearded Dragons, Scorpions, Iguanas, & Snakes!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We are looking for people of ALL types to help out: Hobbyists, Students, Teachers, Vet Techs, Vetenarians, Biologists, Herpetologists, etc. We are also looking for a snake specialist.

We are looking for Donations of all kinds:
* TANKS, ENCLOSURES, SCREEN LIDS, Pet Carriers, Rubbermaid Tubs, etc.
* LIGHTS, Fixtures & bulbs of ALL types
* PUMPS & FILTERS, accessories, drip/misting systems, foggers
* HEAT Pads, mats, emitters, aquarium heaters
* ACCESSORIES: hides, caves, rocks, fake plants/vines, driftwood, dishes

* SUBSTRATE: (unopened) Sand, soil mixes, wood chips, moss, reptile carpet
* BOOKS: Care/feeding, natural history, vet manuals, magazines, field guides
* PACKAGED FOODS: Lizard, frog, tadpole, turtle/tortoise, fish, cricket
* CONTROLS: Timers, thermometers, thermostats, humidifiers, etc.
* VITAMINS, MEDICATIONS: of ALL types, cleaning/disinfecting/odor control products, feeding aids (needles, syringes)
* OTHER: Weigh Scales, incubators, gloves, nets, reptile bags, tank dividers, sealants, sifters/scoopers

Were also looking for Stores, Businesses, Suppliers, Wholesalers, & Companies to make donations! Your business will be referred & recommended through us! As well as advertisments for your business.

Have no money but wanna help? Donate your old stuff! Were also looking for people to build and donate Homemade Enclosures!

Michael (L.I.R.A.R.)

I have a pet iguana that I have been caring for for not too long. We have recently had a baby and I need to find a new home for him. I feel that he will be neglected, because we have very little time to give him the attention and care he needs. We regularly feed him and clean his tank, but it is hard to remove him because so many things need to be disinfected. Please let me know what you might suggest as far as rescue or donations are concerned. Matt

Michael,
I am a licensed Vet Tech, currently teaching Veterinary Science @ the HS level. Along w/ our staff veterinarian, I operate a veterinary clinic w/in my classroom and house a variety of animals from prairie dogs to bearded dragons.
I’m writing for several reasons. First, I’d like to discuss how we might help your organization as far as foster/temporary housing. Secondly, I’d like to discuss the possibility of a member of your organization coming to visit as an educational tool.
Thanks. Hope to hear from you soon.

I have some things left from my step son’s lizard: an igloo type "house", a rock for sunning, and a bowl as well as litter. Would you be interested in them for rescue animals?

My parents got a bearded dragon maybe a little under a year ago, lately he has been having many problems and im looking to put him up for adoption with someone who will be able to nurse him back to health. they were using a heat basking light, and a purple nighttime light that they thought was for the uv rays he needs, so that may be what i causing the problems. just got him a light specifically for uvb today. He seems to have a swollen bottom lip. can’t walk properly and just lays on his stomach doing nothing all day, dosn’t eat his crickets and only eats a little when i try to hand feed him fruit or veggies, hasn’t been pooping other then to poop out whole worms from what they had fed him the day prior. i tried giving him a bath to help with constipation and when i poured a little water in his mouth to try to hydrate him he seemed to start choking. im scared and don’t know what to do,, please help!! (631)278-9352 or email me at becca.

Hi,

I live on the east end of Long Island, I’m 15 but I know about the care of every reptile. I have done research on just about every reptile you can have as pets since I was trying to convince my parents to get me one. I have a bearded dragon. I was wondering if you needed any help with your rescue. I would absolutely love to volunteer there. I already volunteer at a local animal shelter.

Thank you,
Freddi (I’m a girl by the way )

This was my post to the board:

Colombian Boa up for adoption, experience necessary!



Hi, looking to put my Colombia boa up or adoption. It has become extremely aggressive. Has bitten me over 4 times in the last year and just recently bit my son. Not angry and the snake I just can’t put my kids at risk anymore. If someone with experience and patience is willing to adopt the snake, I will be more than happy to give him up. Please, only experienced snake owners. Don’t want him going to someone that doesn’t know what they are doing.
The snake is around 1 year and a half old. Please contact me if you are interested. Thank you!

Rich
