Dedicated to the health and well being of reptiles, small animals, exotics & and other unwanted, dropped off or turned in animals.. . FOUNDED IN 1996 Pets Are Us Rescue has been saving many of the uncommon animals in the pet trade industry. Many of these animals are misunderstood or have grown bigger than expected (iguana's and snakes). We try to educate as much as possible are always available for care of these animals. Over the years there have been many people whom love these animals and have applied as volunteers. All our volunteers go through a very demanding and grueling process to become a member. They do this with their own money and dedication to these animals. All volunteers have specialized in different areas of the pet industry. We supply as much information as possible about the animal you are adopting!!!! PETS ARE US RESCUE IS A TOTALLY VOLUNTARY ORGANIZATION. WE HAVE NO PAID EMPLOYEE'S, ALL ANIMALS ARE HOUSED AT HOMES TO ENSURE 24-7 CARE. THIS ENABLES A MORE STABLE PET AND ADOPTION. WE KNOW THE ANIMALS BETTER THIS WAY. LESS STRESS. Over 600 of our animals have found good homes and are very happy. Many keep in touch and we have watched them grow over the years, it is very rewarding. NO ANIMALS LEAVE OUR RESCUE UNTIL THEY ARE READY TO BECOME SOMEONES BELOVED PET. All animals go through our testing to ensure they are a candidate for adoption, this includes personality, condition, All our animals must be social and handiable and healthy! Although we can never ensure their health, the same as all animals there is never a guarantee on any animal adopted. Care sheets go with each animal. If you need veternarian reference we will be glad to help you. We do offer to take back any animal at anytime, ADOPTION FEE NON REFUNDABLE. Our animals come to us in many different ways, unwanted, feel they are not spending enough time with the pet and want them to get a good home, sick, or picked up from a call by the zoo, the police, etc, there are many different situations .PEOPLE ENTRUST THEIR BELOVED PET TO US, WE HONOR ALL THEIR REQUESTS AND KEEP THE ANIMALS UNTIL A SUITABLE CANDIDATE ARRIVES. THEY ARE SOME OF THE MOST LOVEABLE ANIMALS SINCE THEY ORIGINATED FROM LOVING, CARING HOMES!!. We love to hear from children who wish to learn more about animals and wildlife. They are more than welcome to email us our sites are recommended for all ages unless stated. WE HAVE BEEN FEATURED IN MANY SCHOOL REPORTS, ALONG WITH INTERVIEWS FOR NEWSPAPERS AND OTHER FORMS OF COMMUNICATIONS, NOT ALL OUR ANIMALS COME FROM LOVING HOMES SOME ARE NEGLECTED AND IN REALLY BAD SHAPE AND CONDITION. WE LET THEM KNOW THAT WE LOVE THEM SUPPLY THEM WITH THE VERY BEST MEDICAL CARE. WE SEE HOW THEY CHANGE AND BECOME HEALTHY AND LOVEABLE AND THAT IN IT SELF IS VERY REWARDING! . WE WILL REQUIRE YOU TO SIGN OUR ADOPTION CONTRACT, AND PAY AN ADOPTION FEE. IF YOU HAVE ANY REPTILES, SMALL ANIMALS AND/OR EXOTICS OR ANY ANIMALS THAT NEED A GOOD HOME LET US KNOW WE WILL BE GLAD TO HELP IN ANY WAY POSSIBLE. WE CAN TAKE THE ANIMAL IN AND FIND A GOOD LOVING HOME FOR IT. ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE. PLEASE CLICK ON THE BOX BELOW AND DONATE WHAT EVER YOU CAN IT WILL HELP US SAVE MORE LIVES.

{ else }   Top 10 List: I AM AN ANIMAL RESCUER  
I am an Animal Rescuer
My job is to assist God's creatures
I was born with the drive to fulfill their needs
I take in helpless, unwanted, homeless creatures without planning or selection
I have bought dog food with my last dime
I have patted a mangy head with a bare hand
I have hugged someone vicious and afraid
I have fallen in love a thousand times
And I have cried into the fur of a lifeless body too many times to count
I have animal friends and friends who have animal friends
I don't often use the word "pet"
I notice those lost at the road side
And my heart aches
I will hand raise a field mouse
And make friends with a vulture
I know of no creature unworthy of my time
I want to live forever if there aren't any animals in Heaven
But I believe there are
Why would God make something so perfect and leave it behind
Some may think we are master of the animals
But the animals have mastered themselves
Something people still haven't learned
War and abuse make me hurt for the world
But a rescue that makes the news gives me hope for mankind
We are a quiet but determined army
And we are making a difference every day
There is nothing more necessary than warming an orphan
Nothing more rewarding than saving a life
No higher recognition than watching them thrive
There is no greater joy than seeing a baby play
who only days ago, was too weak to eat
By the love of those who I've been privileged to rescue
I have been rescued
I know what true unconditional love really is
for I've seen it shining in the eyes of so many
Grateful for so little
I am an Animal Rescuer
My work is never done
My home is never quiet
My wallet is always empty
But my heart is always full

    { else }   Blog: ABUSIVE PET STORES  
    PETCO March 2006 I can't remember the website where I made the complaint you have posted on your site from March 2005. I've got some updates to submit. I didn't say anything earlier though I should have. An associate tells me the latest 'behind the scences' when I go visit. A month ago they informed me about two baby Leopard Geckos that were near dead that she was trying to adopt to save, but Ed (assistant manager)only let them save one. The following day when they tried to save the other, they found out Ed (assistant store manager) had dropped it in a tub of mealworms to be eaten alive. The associates didn't find it in time to save it from this horrible cruel death. They currently have some bony patternless Leopards that need help fast. They're vomiting up the mealworms Petco demands be in all tanks probly due to being unable to digest them because they're so skinny. The new Store manager also has a dumped off Ball they are trying to sell that only eats live. He acxcepted the dumped off ball python because 'he had never seen a snake eat live' and later proceeded to through a rat in the tank on the sales floor on a Saturday morning during open hours. They covered a little of the tank then had two managers standing to either side to block customers so they could watch the snake eat the live prey, one of their own rats!!!!!!!!!! The Ball would get them in trouble with there own bosses, but the rest need help.
