Female regular silver/grey color.
This animal belongs to a coworker. I do not know what she comes with (I'm assuming it will include everything she needs for at least basic care) or if there will be a rehoming fee, but I will give your contact information to the owner so that you can discuss details together.
FIDDLE and FADDLE
large female adult Red Eared Sliders
smaller female Red Eared Slider--has some sort of shell condition
is an 8 year old Female Red Eared Slider. She's large, weighing in at about 1050 grams. She will need a pond or VERY large tank to be happy. She has some mild pyramiding (retained scutes?), and one side of her shell is larger than the other causing her to list to one side. She is a very active gal!
is an 8 year old male Red Eared Slider weighing in at about 990 grams. He would prefer a pond but could be happy in a large tank. He may not do well with other turtles (was briefly placed with Turtle and chased her around trying to bite; did not appear to be courtship behavior). He is a little bit shy and tends to pull his head in when approached.
is a 2 year old African Side Necked turtle of unknown gender. He is active and quite personable and would make a great pet turtle! He will need a large tank.
3 year old amel corn (small for her age but appears healthy)
This snake is a bit shy and prefers to spend most of his/her time in her rock hide. The shelter had some issues handling her, but I have not. She eats frozen thawed mice prefering them to be wiggled in front of her.
update 2/3/11 still available!
Kloe still likes her rock hide but becomes very active in the evenings. She will also take her mouse if you just lay it there but still prefers a little wiggle off of some tongs. I still have had no handling issues with her.
update 6/7/11 Kloe is still here!
She has become much more active, is fine for handling, and has no issues at all with feeding. She is currently taking f'/t hoppers soon to move on to weanlings.
She is curious about anything that comes into her tank (I guess she wants to know if it's food). So far she has never struck, but she comes out (kinda fast) & investigates; this behavior could be frightening to younger children who have not had prior snake experience.
2 year old normal corn
This snake is outgoing and easy to handle. He spends time exploring his enclosure and would make a great first snake! He is eating frozen thawed mice.
will be 8 weeks and ready for new homes on Jun 22, 2012

JOLENE--adopted!!! (by me...been here almost 2 years; how could I not keep her???)
A four year old special needs Dalmatian looking for a wonderful, loving "forever home". If you think you could be that special someone in Jolene's life, please contact Sonya at email@example.com or Willing Hearts Dalmatian Rescue at firstname.lastname@example.org
Foster dog "Jolene" will be arriving at my house soon.
Here is what her owner has to say about her; I will add more as I get to know her:
Jolene is a personable four-year-old who loves cuddling, playing in the house and staying close by the people she knows. Her favorite part of the day is greeting the people she knows - which she does without jumping! She has very nice house manners, is happy to sleep in on a lazy weekend and gets along well with cats inside the house - she evens lets them clean her! Though she is fiercely loyal to people she sees every day, she does best with a familiar set of faces and a constant routine each day. Loves to be outside if it is a space she knows and doesn't have strangers in it! Up-to-date on all her shots, and is on monthly heartworm medication.--------------------------------------------------------------------
Jolene has been here since 8/11. Bloodwork has shown that Jolene is diabetic! (all of her other organ function was right on target though). She also came to me with a mild skin infection and mild urinary tract infection. She has been put on antibiotics for the infections and has started twice daily insulin injections (Vetsulin brand). Her blood sugar will be retested in about a week to see if her initial insulin dosage is correct for her.
She does not like dogs trying to mount her (she will snap at them) but has not shown any true dog aggression. I have had 8 dogs in my home this week and not one dog fight, not even over food!
She is very shy around new people but has not tried to bite anyone, not even the vet or technicians poking, prodding & needle sticking her.She will take a treat from anyone who offers.
Only one of my cats will venture downstairs; she has shown no interest in him, nor in the birds or reptiles.
She is very good in the house, rides great in the car, and walks nicely on a leash.
Anyone looking for pretty dog who is calm, quiet and well-mannered should consider Jolene. She will need more veterinary care than other dogs, but canine diabetes can usually be managed very well with consistent meals, simple subcutaneous injections, and regular veterinary visits. There is no reason to believe that Jolene can't live a normal, happy life with a full lifespan!
UPDATE May 2011:
You all missed out on a good one! Jolene is here to stay :) Please check out Willing Hearts Dalmatian Rescue for other dals & friends needing homes!
