Donating Items and Food
As a charity, we rely on donations in order to care for our animals. There are more ways to donate than monetary if that is not an option for you, please see below for other ways to help.
Substrates/Enclosure Floor Coverings
For the majority of the animals in our care; especially those in quarantine, we use Newspaper as a standard floor covering for the enclosure. Although it is not naturally what the animals would have in the wild, it is necessary for us in a Rescue capacity. We currently use the following:
Toilet Roll or Kitchen Roll inserts (Great as hides for snakes)
Moss (For creating humidity)
