This sweet little snake is a Corn snake named 'Oakley'. He has been with us for quite some time now and we are desperately seeking him a permanent home. Oakley is one of many 'stray'! Corn snakes which have been handed into the centre over the last few years. At first he had problems eating and was very 'on and off', however the last six months he has really made some progress. We believe his growth is stunted, therefore he has taking longer than normal to grow, but he is starting to come on leaps and bounds now.

Meet Mary the Leopard Gecko,

A quiet older lady seeking a relaxing permanent home!

Mary came into the centre a couple of years ago as her owners felt they could no longer give her the care she needed. One of her eyes sustained an infection early in life and unfortunately she lost her sight in that eye as the damage was irrepairable. Despite this, Mary has a good appetite and functions normally with her one eye; she even has a few companions at the moment!

We would really like to find her a new home to live out the rest of her life, she is approximately 12 years old.

If you are interested in adopting Mary please get in contact with us, we are happy to answer any questions you may have and we would be delighted to arrange a viewing if you would like to see her.
