Adoption success

January 7th, 2015 Posted in Uncategorized | No Comments »

Hi there Patty,

I just wanted to give you guys an update on Bizzy (now named Flopsy) who I adopted from you guys a couple of weeks ago. Please send this along to Dave with the pictures as I don’t have his email. She’s settling in wonderfully here. Her fur is starting to grow in thicker and shinier and she’s got a lot more energy. I think having her own space is helping. I’m going to try to make an appointment with the vet next week to give her a check-up and her distemper shot for the year. She’s a very sweet, very cuddly little girl. Also, I got her a much bigger cage. Just cuz. :) She now has a 24″ x 24″ x 48″ cage with hammocks, snuggle cubes, blankets, and TONS of toys all to herself.

Another successful match!

Dear Patty,

I apologize for the lengthy delay in contacting you. I made contact a couple of times. She is a very nice person. We drove over to the end of Rte. 80 where Re 26 begins in NJ. and met XX, her Mother ( who only speaks Spanish), and her son. They obviously really cared for Rango.

She asked me not to change his name – so, we have not. He knows his name and looks at you when you call him. He is a very friendly, polite iguana. He is undersized. You had said that his diet was questionable. We now have him on high -test dark greens, veggies, and fresh fruit (limited quantities). He is getting a lot of UV time and sufficient heat. We believe in free-roaming. He gets what we call ‘tank time ‘ (hangs in the aquarium that Celia sent along with him) between 8:30am – 12:00 noon. This gives him an opportunity to take a ‘poop’. He is then free to head up to the bedroom – where he sits in the window on a warming pad. I keep a humidifier running throughout the day. He then is brought down for the evening to hang out with us in the kitchen area on a warming pad and under a UV light on a tall cat stand. Celia sent along his blanket also (remnant of his previous life) I wash it once a week and he likes to curl up underneath it every night to sleep.

We found out that he has a terrible case of ‘pin worms’. Not the human kind – thank God. He is in the process of de-worming (multiple doses of Panacur. I never had this issue in any of my other iguanas, but have found out that this is a common parasite in green iguanas. We discovered this by examining his feces. He had not been gaining weight as expected. He is looking better already. We are very pleased with the adoption. Rango is getting used to his schedule and our house. It usually takes approx.. 6 months for them to acclimate very much like a cat.

XX said that we are now an extended family. Lol I am planning on sending her more text photos of him. She laughed when I told her that he has rules.

So, I guess I just want to say thank you for your efforts in helping the iguana and us. If I know of anyone looking for a ferret – I will point them in your direction.

Thank you again.

JJ

Hi Dave!
Its Alex. You know, Colin’s girlfriend? Haha well I just wanted to email you some pictures of Pippah and Meteor. I promised I would!!! :) they’re both doing really well and are happy as can be! Meteor isn’t even biting anymore! Pippah is extremely playful (and the instigator!) She definitely came out of her shell of being kind of timid and shy! They both love each other (as you can see in the pictures) and Colin and I love them infinitely! Hope to hear from you soon!

-Alex

SCALES AND TAILS RESCUE IS LOCATED IN RANDOLPH, NJ

Uncle Fester  came in as an owner surrender,typical story that the kid wanted a ferret.  Parents either didn’t pay attention or didn’t want to spend money for vet care- but this guy came in NAKED.  Never had vet care and they dont’ even remember his original color.  Depsite his looks he is active and vet estimated to be only 3 years old.  He is to go in for Adrenal surgery and will likely need monthly shot of lupron for life.

Uncle Fester

 

Sadly Uncle Fester did not make it.  Thank you for all your warm wishes and concern.

May he rest in peace.
