I am very confused by all your recent posts today. I'm sorry, I'm not usually judgmental, but this does not sound like a safe "rescue" environment, it all sounds shady.
You have 4 gliders that are NOT currently in the same state that your in and can't afford to ship them to yourself. Ok, i get -things happen!
Yet you are misleading some of the people who need to rehome their gliders (all over the country mind you!) by saying you currently have 2 sets of twins???
The skittles one that needs rehomed is a single male glider, his owner is hoping he will find a colony to join. So if he/she ends up turning skittles over to you skittles will still be alone, until you retrieve your 4 gliders from Ny?. But skittles owner isn't aware that you don't actually currently have Your gliders, their in a different state. http://www.sugarglider.com/glidergossip/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=55022
If anyone is trying to re-home there gliders or need someone to rescue them please contact me.i am currently looking for a couple more sugar gliders to go with the babies i already have. i have two sets of twins. one boys & one girls. they get a tone of attention and loving. I live in New Orleans La. i currently do not have enough money to pay to adopt them but if you need re homing please contact me. i will do what i can. thank you in advance
Curious as to how you can afford to purchase,transport,and house/cage/feed all these potential "rescued" gliders, not to mention Vet checks for the new arrivals, if you can't afford to transport your own to you or pay to adopt ones that need new homes?????
So here's a few questions, that can perhaps clear up my confusion.
Are the gliders that are in ny yours ?
Or are they someones that is willing to surrender their gliders to you, if you can find transportation from Ny to La.?
Do you actually have gliders residing with you in New Orleans that a single glider could join?
Can you afford the vet care the new glider/s will need?
Don't get me wrong, I fully support Rescue homes and groups. When they can properly and Responsibly care for ALL of the rescue-es needs. If I had the room and the money I would venture into rescuing my self, but the reality is... I don't.
My Reality is, I have 2 gliders 1 is a rescue we adopted, that I CAN afford to take care of and house properly and healthily. Taking on anymore than 2 I already have would only do a disservice to the animals.
Many of the rescues are not always healthy when they arrive, most males are not even neutered. Just yesterday my local rescue lady took 6 male gliders in to be neutered, 6!!. Thankfully her vet offers her discounts because she brings soooo many in! Last week she retrieved 11 gliders from the same person, 6 of whom were the males that needed neutered! They weren't all bonded so 2 more cages were required since the cages they came with needed thrown out!! Her rescue is now maxed out until some of them find new forever homes. She typically has rescues for 6 months to over a year before they find new homes.
This woman works around the clock between dealing with prospective owners and providing a happy home and proper care for the gliders and other exotic animals until they are adopted. The local glider experienced vet is on speed dial and she doesn't hesitate to take them in if need be, there is no wait till payday cuz I can't afford a vet bill right now. And the animals are not adopted out to just anyone, she takes special care to find the Right family for the Right rescues. And still manages to remain in contact with adopted families months after adopting.
Seriously I admire and commend her for all that she does! But I also know It is not feasible or realistic for me to try to do the same. I also realize it wouldn't benefit animals that really need the help if I couldn't provide it immediately.
I understand you probably aren't going to do a big operation like my local rescue lady but still...Please consider what you are getting yourself into financially and emotionally /physically before you take in any rescues. Especially think what is best for the animals you would be taking in. There are far to many gliders that just get passed around and don't receive the proper care out there already!
