Reptile Rescue Life

  • Surviving Extreme Weather with Reptiles

    I thought I was moving to Texas, somewhere WARM...instead I feel like I'm in Alaska!  -2F and power outages, frozen water pipes.  Challenge:  keepi...
  • Bearded Dragon as a "Starter Pet"

    We get this question on a regular basis:  My son/daughter is wanting a reptile.  What do you recommend for a starter pet?

    Hands down, a bearded dragon!  Why?  Because:

  • Regroup & Punt in These Uncertain Times! Commercial Rodent Facility Under Construction!

    While the rescue is, and will always be, my central focus...I have decided to breed rodents here in Texas.  We have been raising rats and mice in NC for the past 6 years
  • Happy January! - Now What?!

  • Thankful End to 2020! What's Next in 2021? It seems like everything we cherished as "normal" was sent skidding helter skelter and "bizarre" is the word for the day.

  • Information & The Internet - Best Places To Get Good Advice

    It is a fact that today, we have information OVERLOAD.  Anyone with an opinion can post on their Facebook pages, websites and in the forums. As much as I like to hear about actual experiences, there is a lot of MISINFORMATION floating around!  The New Pet Owner Is LOST trying to find out the most credible information on how to care for the animal that has won their hearts.  Often times, they fall prey to bad advice and both the animal & Owner suffer because of it.

    What to Do???

  • 2020 What a Bizarre Year! Rescue, Ministry, What's Coming in 2021

    Me?  You ask?  Thanks... In May, I became an Ordained Minister.  Not for the purpose of preaching, but for the overwhelming feeling inside to provide ministry support for those in need.  God directed me to a small town in Texas and here I begin my journey.  The animals need help and so do our fellow man.  These times are unprecedented and hard.  My aim is to help and feed the hungry so in establishing my rescue here in Texas, my next endeavor is to open a soup kitchen and keep a food bank operational. We have so many homeless, hungry, cold, dirty and in need of medical attention.  It is my desire to help with these needs.
  • The World of Reptiles & Exotic Animals - Life at Home & On The Road

    What you feel as you travel around the tables and booths is a sense of connection.  We all converse before, during and after the shows and usually meet at night for a group supper and talk about the day.  It's a great way to experience life.  We support you as a consumer and ourselves as animal lovers, entrepreneurs and promotors of education.  We come together as family at each venue.  If someone needs help, it's freely given and information is exchanged so it's a great experience for everyone.
  • Tradeshow & Life Impact of Covid-19 Mayhem - We Need Light at the End of the Tunnel!

    COVID-19 PANDEMIC:

    Boom:  We are being told for the first time in MY lifetime that we have to stay at home, wear a mask and businesses had to shut down.  Where the heck did I wake up?  China???  In that faithful morning, my world, along with millions of others, took a drastic change.  I no longer had a job, yet I still have the same bills as the day before.  How am I going to eat?  How am I going to feed all these animals?  Lord, the power bill, the animals lives depend on that!  Not destroy my credit?  The list goes on and on.

    Oh Crap, I can't go see my elderly family members and have to worry about my aging friends.  

    I have a rescue full of animals and no income...  marinate on that for a moment.
