Hello again, friends. Winter is over and it was pretty rough. We're in desperate need of help at Waddles'n'Wags Animal Haven.

      For those who don't know, we take in unwanted pets as well as animals that are given to us because their owners either can't or no longer want to care for them. We cherish every creature that comes through our gates and provide care and rehabilitation to the best of our ability. Our enclosures and pens are desperately in need of renovating and repairs. The ice storms and heavy snow have done some serious damage to fencing and cages with some of them being wrecked completely.

     Additionally, many of the animals that we take in require specialty foods or veterinary care and enrichment items so they don't get bored or stressed in a stagnant environment. The majority of our enclosures are built to larger-than-suggested sizes; it's always better to go bigger when it comes to living space.

     Finally, and to end this request on a brighter note, we're still trying to install some cameras so we can stream live broadcasts of our rarer, shy and nocturnal animals. Since visitors don't normally get to see them we think it'd be a great idea if we could find some way to let people view them online (they're rarely out when we get visitors).

     Waddles'n'Wags Animal Haven is (and always has been) a family owned and run exotic animal rescue. We're not a typical commercial zoo; all of our animals were either raised by us or nurtured by us after being rescued. We pride ourselves on friendly, educational tours that take you right into their living space for up close and personal visits. With over 80 species of furry, feathered or scaly critters there's surely something for everyone to enjoy. With your help, we'll continue to do so for many years to come.

     So, if you can, please hit the donate button and help us give a home and some TLC to all of our amazing creatures, great and small. Thanks for reading and we hope to see you soon!

Some of the newest additions to our family.

Zoomz the grey kitten lost his front feet to frostbite when he was born in a snowbank.

The 7' Burmese python was one of 2 given to us as rescues from someone no longer able to care for them.

The large lizard is a Nile monitor, also a rescue from the same home as the burms.

We are a month from opening day for the 2019 season and it looks like Mother Nature might finally allow for us to get outside and work on the grounds.

The winter destroyed more than a few enclosures with the heavy weight snowfalls. Our brand new fox pen expansion roof has already caved in partially.

We considered staying closed this year with all the bills piled up and the vast amount of repairs needed but decided to try this once more.

Thank you!

Thank you to all of you who donated so far!
There was an apparent glitch in the page and a few people commented that they couldn't donate. That is now fixed.

Remember even $1 adds up to a lot if lots of people donate it. :)
