I'd be more than happy to jump aboard. I've been reading some of the beardie rescue stories & it just makes me so angry & sad that people can treat these beautiful creatures in that manner. :evil: My 2 beardies were rescue's - both brother's, 3.5 yrs old, no heating, insufficient lighting, incorrect feeding & absolutely no calcium nor vitamins had ever been given to them. Their substrate was sand when I got them..... Now though, they have 2 heat globes, a heat mat, a uvb light, a flourescent tube for extra lighting, slate tiles & synthethic turf as substrate. They're fed twice daily, are bathed several times a week & they snuggle with mum every night. They have their own blankie & cuddly toys. They are totally spoilt as they well deserved to be!

Although most of the members here seem to be in the U.S, I'm in Melbourne Australia & if anyone sees any type of animal that needs to be rescued near me - please let me know. I've already told the staff at a nearby store to seperate a couple of beardies who aren't getting along. Having one beardie so black-bearded that half of him is black, & unable to move a muscle from fear of being picked on by another beardie is completely unacceptable. When I told the staff that, they laughed. Unfortunately for them I'm bossy when need be & I put them in their place. I may be 5ft 2.5 inches tall but I can be scary when the need arises! lol! I refuse to tolerate anyone who does not treat their pets like the are Gods.

Kylie from Melbourne, happily on-board :blob5:

I am in a little town called Winlock, WA. I am willing to drive for a few hours when needed, sign me up! Portland is nearish, and Seattle is only a two and half hours away.

Hey I'm new to this forum (definitely not to reptile husbandry). I just moved to Columbia SC so if you ever need anyone in my area please let me know. I just rescued a leopard gecko that got to me in a similar manner, it's a great system and a great idea.

Feel free to email me, aebarber27@gmail.com

Cheers

Would anyone in/near Maryland be willing to help me get these poor babies?

I live a little over an hour's drive away(2 and a halfish round trip) but I can't drive and it's a 6ish hour plus $60 round trip metro. >.<

plus whatever adoption fee these people decided on, for all I know it could be an awful dealbreaker..

But, if anyone can help and the price isn't awful(i'd pay you their adopt. fee), they certainly look like they need a rescue.....

Edit: Nevermind..their adoption fee was $150 for just them and the lady got mad and stopped talking to me when I offered up 80..
