Rescues also place animals out for adoption.
From what it sounds like, I think Herpkingdom hit the nail on the head and that you basically just want free animals.

I appreciate everyone's thoughts on this. I haven't had a chance to get in touch with my shop owner friends in FL. I also appreciate your willingness Reptile1 to help take them off my hands for me- but with no disresprect, I have friends who I know very well and believe they have good hearts- but I can't bare to give the snakes to them because I don't know how well they handle reptiles- they just don't have any experience other than being over at my house. I think my best bet is getting in touch with my FL friends. It's hard- it sucks- and honestly- I have no idea what I want to do. I turn to all of you because I know I will get ideas/suggestions from you all and hopefully something will become quite clear as to what their future's hold in store for them.
Also, I'm sorry for the delayed response- I wanted to try to go thru the extended weekend without having to think about this- but I couldn't resist jumping back online. I guess I should just go outside, enjoy the weather, and come back to this later on. But again- if anyone has any other ideas/suggestion....

Well this may be the worst advice you will ever hear but I will still tell you simply cause I did it just 6 days ago.

Now you are moving can't change that but you can decide what house you are geting get a house with a extra room and change the door nobe so it lock with a key place all your animals there if ppl ask why it is locked say somthing like your husband has a cd colection and he is paranoide that it will be stolen or somthing like that if it is a old friend well you can tell the truth. And make a 180 twist and becoume a person that can even see a snake on tv ppl will never suspect you at all.

I know I know it is the worst advice a person can give but despret times mean despret mesuresand if you will only take one with you in hiding that the burm it is way worth it.

Chondro Python, that may work if you're movign somewhere that you can drive to..... it'd be awfully hard to fly her snakes in without it being discovered that they were snakes.

Yeah you definitly wouldn't want to be screwing around with moving animals to Hawaii. A small small portion of my family lives there, and bringing in other animals, or even plants I beleive is a big no no.

They are currently having problems with the possibility that both Vieled chams and green iguanas are living feral on the islands. Both species could devestate native areas.

If I was you I would keep trying to find a friend or person you know.

I have already thoguht of sneaking one with me- the burm (right now) is amogst the smallest but if we are going to be there anywhere from 2 to 5 years- she will definately become harder to sneak back out. I don't think she would let me try to but a wig and lipstick on her and call her Bernice. (I tried putting lipstick on my laborador retriever once- it wasn't pretty.) I htink it would also be shadey if I kept showing up at the pet store each weekend.

I made myself smile- I still have the liptick image in my head about my dog-- I made her look like a cheap floozey.

also, where would you get the food? It would never work. Sorry for your loss and I hope you find someplace good for them.

Food really wouldnt be a problem for the snake in Hawaii..
It is easy according to many sites I searched, to bring a snake in, but they all say that you WILL be caught if trying to leave Hawaii with a snake.

http://search.yahoo.com/search?fr=sl...ii+reptile+law

Hawaii does have an amnesty program, for illegal animals, but would you really want to sentence the snake to death when you are ready to leave?

Even then, since Hawaii is under a federal quarentine on a lot of things, is a bad mark or possibly a dishonorable discharge, something your husband wants following him around all his life?
(Dishonorable discharge is the same as a convicted felon as in loss of many rights in the US.)

Wouldn't be worth it to me.. I love my honorable DD214.

Best bet is to give up the animals, either by selling or giving away and biding the time in Hawaii till it's done.

All I can say is what I would do in your situation. Take it as you wish. If I had absolutely no choice but to move and no way to smuggle the snakes in and out, I'd find good homes for them, hopefully with the promise of getting or buying them back when I returned to a place where they were legal. If not, I would mourn the loss of them for a while, and start completely anew once I moved again. There is a lot to be said for starting over again. You'll never replace them, but you'll always have room in your heart for new ones. That's just my 2 cents. If it's any consolation, I know most of us will be mourning with you. We all sympathize with the loss of beloved pets.

I would love to sneak one in, but I would hate to have to hide it all the time. I like taking them out and handling them; I wouldnít want to have to feel like I am harboring a convict from the state. I wonder how they would look going through the x-ray machine? Iím the type of person who would totally get caught doing that- itís all part of my luck, or the lack there of. Taking them with is not an option. Hoping that my FL friends will hang onto them or suggest good homes is the right way to go. I will contact them this week and hope that I receive good news. Invictus put it well:

It would be so easy for me to help because I'm from Connecticut. but I'm going to be changing jobs soon (if all goes well) and that means Moving to new Haven or Hamden. My place probably wont be big enough to keep all your critters but if you are still desperate I might be able to accomodate one. When are you leaving?

Yep, I say go underground. Venomous snakes are illegal in TN, luckily I can keep mine in GA, but I know plenty of people in this state with venomous. You can have your friends fed ex them to you the day after you move in and order all the food you need from Rodentpro.com. I am sure he will unmark the box for you if you tell him your situation. I bet there are under ground keepers all over the island. Best of luck to you.
