I have and work with rescue dogs. And I was always curious to know if people who love...
reptiles such as snakes have 'rescue centres', 'rescue people' for the animals that have not been looked after by their owners/stolen etc., like dogs have? I know this must sound so dumb to you folks in the know, but I am genuinely interested as there is so much abuse of animals of all kinds in our present day, that I often wondered about less common pets such as snakes and other reptiles. Many thanks.
I don't know of any for sure, but i would bet money that there are rescue people for all manner of critter. You can contact the national animal advocate groups: Best Friends, In Defense of Animals, and PETA; to find out more. Give your dogs a kiss for me.
Lovely to hear from you! Thanks for your answer and as requested have given all the dogs a hug and kiss!!! Many thanks.
I found a few numbers for you of reptile rescues.You should go to ReptileRescueLeagure.org.They have a whole directory of numbers and places for reptiles.Most states do not have rescue centers for reptiles though.Hope this helps.
I know this is quite an old question, but thought you might be interested none the less. One of the best known reptile rescue centres in the UK is Proteus reptile rescue at www.proteusreptiletrust.org. Many RSPCA centres will take in unwanted or stray reptiles. The college where I worked obtained several snakes from the RSPCA and I had one of my terrapins, who was picked up as a stray/abandoned, from the RSPCA.

Hi there, thanks for the post! It's very useful for my coming trip to Penang. However I read...that currently the railway going up Penang Hill is temperarily unavailable until Nov, is Penang Hill itself worth visiting then? Thx!

I've been away for awhile. I took time to rebuild some stuff that needs not be discussed, but there are so many new people. If you've been here for six months or less say hi.
