Hey, guys. If you keep reptiles or know anything about them, I need your help. I recently moved onto a military base where I’m not allowed to keep reptiles, meaning my three snakes - who are like children to me - had to go to my sister in Colorado for a while. Long story short, I’m worried about their well-being and it isn’t working out too well. My mother refuses to take her to buy food for them, so they ARE NOT EATING. I am absolutely heartbroken. So, if you live in Colorado or know someone there, please help me out. I need someone to watch them until I can have them again. I PROMISE I will reimburse you for everything as soon as possible. They already have cages and heating that I purchased for them. Please. I’m desperate. These are my babies and they’re going hungry. I love them so much. These animals have kept me from losing my mind and I can’t stand the thought of this. Please reblog this. My animals need loving, temporary homes. I will be endlessly thankful and I will be sure to make it up to you. Just please help my babies. Don’t hesitate to message me if you have questions.
USARK has pointed me in their direction once more, as there is a public forum to voice your concern over the Lacey Act, which will ban us from transporting our pets over state lines…though it will be legal to own your pet in all states, it will be illegal to carry them to each state….this law is punishable by $100,000 fine, and up to 5 years in prison.
so please fallow this link and comment about it.
be professional and eloquent in your responses…only 500+ have commented…that’s about 1/3 of you reading this. so i know there are plenty of us out there.
so please visit USARKs link, they provide you with all you need to know, and where you need to go to comment.
it’s been a wile sine All About Reptiles has written an article about anything. [we used to do one every day!]
but i am sure a lot of you are aware and or affected by the recent snake ban that has passed the United States House and Senate.
now this ban is a very confusing thing to a lot of us.
how is it enforced? how does this affect the medical treatment of our animals at vet offices? how does this affect me? does it make me a criminal? how did this get passed? how does this affect my business as a breeder?
there is still a lot of fogginess around this bill and a lot of us do not understand a lot of it, even when we try to learn more about it.
if it is something that affects your life, or something you are upset about and you do not have a resource please check out USARK’s site as they’re one of the only reptile organizations big enough to challenge this legislation on behalf of all of us. poke around and see what you learn
