Re: Frustrating me to no end, poor animal.

It's very sad and mind boggling it's still alive. That is one strong boa to still be alive 2 years later.

Two years later? Have you contacted authorities again? That is horrible.

Re: Frustrating me to no end, poor animal.

If you want to buy this animal and get it out of there, I can offer some money up to help fund it. I know it's not ideal.... Maybe get a GoFundMe account too? Anything to get this baby out. I don't want to support these jerk faces, but 2 years later, this animal deserves a second chance.

Re: Frustrating me to no end, poor animal.

If I had the skills to rehabilitate an animal in that poor shape I would have probably caved after 2 years. I know it's wrong to support this behavior but I have the spine of a gummy bear.

Re: Frustrating me to no end, poor animal.

Unfortunately by paying them any money it will just allow them to purchase another animal to torture until someone caves and buys that one as well. You would only be propagating the vicious cycle by paying them money. It is a sad situation, but sometimes taking a stand on one animal saves many more. I would continue to complain the authorities and take more recent pictures. That would be over two years of neglect and hopefully you can get someone to act. I was under the impression that pet laws in the Netherlands were much stricter.

Perhaps we could all send the store emails.

Re: Frustrating me to no end, poor animal.

I wouldn't mind getting him to be honest, he needs help so bad I really wish i could help him been thinking about him all day. He's been cared for so poorly for I think around 3 years.. I don't think they'll replace him with a new animal soon if he sells/dies... They have a tiny reptile department (It's an aquarium store, most of the reptile department is empty).. I mailed/called/got people to mail/call.. nothing.. Only option is to cough up the cash.. I simply don't have it.. I've never been this tempted.. Even been reasoning with myself... Since technically it woulndt support the store, they've been feeding/heating etc for oved 3 years, and they overpaid for him.. I think this is a dump price in their eyes (considering a normal cornsnake costs 150 there) I don't know what to do....

Re: Frustrating me to no end, poor animal.

I don't know about your predicament. I too, have seen my fair share of abused animals...my mother and I frequently call the ASPCA on people we know are mistreating their animals. I don't know what authorities you have over there, but if you are persistent, they will get something done usually. My family has even resorted to stealing neglected animals from bad owners. Now, I am NOT telling you to steal that baby, but, I'm saying sometimes if things are drastic, we must take desperate measures. Call the authorities again and again-everyday if necessary. Tell them you will not stop. Can you call a newstation, even? These days, there are a lot more people who are sensitive to the unloved animals who aren't being caref for.

Re: Frustrating me to no end, poor animal.

If you take up gybeetles idea, I can't donate $$$ but I can share a gofundme link on instagram. My beardie has an account and has quite a few followers from the reptile community.

Re: Frustrating me to no end, poor animal.

Tsubaki: Message or email me offline. I can try and cough up the cash. I don't know what the USD rate is, but I have my tax refund coming in. I know you're a good rehab'r. If you can take on another snake, I'll do my best to help get this little one out. I can't really meet you in the Netherlands; I don't think I can drive there from here Please let me know

Re: Frustrating me to no end, poor animal.

Can you intimidate them to drop the price? Tell them, after taking pics and discussing with your vet, you know this animal will cost X amount of dollars to give it a fighting chance at good health, so spending Y amount of dollars is more realistic given this animal's poor health. See if they can drop it down to something more reasonable...

I'd donate, too! What on Earth is the exchange like from US dollars to whatever you guys have? Sorry, I've only been out of Texas once and that was to see the in-laws. I'm not exactly "worldly".

Re: Frustrating me to no end, poor animal.

Jesus Christ.

You know the worst thing for it? Somebody buying it. I did that once, got a rescue from a local petstore which was there suffering for 3 years.

I believed I did the animal a favor, and I might of, really. But the result? The petstore got 2 new, and the VERY SAME snakes, sitting in the same small enclosure 2 weeks later. They will be there again for another 3 years or more. I felt like i only cut off the head of a hydra.

It's sad to say, but to do the reptiles on larger scale a favor, you should never buy from a bad store because you feel sorry about the animal. It's heartbreaking, but this is the only way to stop this

I also travel for 1.5 hour to a outskirt little place to get my supplies, because those people have a real care about their animals and I really do not care they cost a bit more. It's obvious good care also costs money, and without that the store can't exist.


PS. If you really feel this sorry, I'd be willing to donate, but I'm really afraid you'd only find the terrarium refilled a few weeks after making the disappointment worse...
