Speedy's Story...
Speedy is an adult female Bearded Dragon. Speedy came to RCHS after a short stray hold at our local shelter and was suffering from dehydration and was under weight. He has now been in a foster home for several months and is quite healthy and ready to find her new forever home! Speedy has grown a lot and we estimate her age to be around 2yrs old. Speedy's adoption fee is $50 this does NOT include her aquarium but she will need to be housed in a 50gallon or larger tank.

Speedy does need to have her diet monitored closely to make sure she is getting enough calcium as we have discovered she has multiple healed fractures, most likely from a bought of metabolic bone disease in her younger years. However she is healthy and has great bone density currently and she doesn't let her past injuries slow her down.

Speedy enjoys being fed by hand, but eats a good meal of veggies and fruits from a bowl each morning. Chasing crickets, phoenix worms, and other insects is fun and a good source of protein and some that she very much enjoys. She is also quite friendly and enjoys sitting on a lap, especially in a good spot of sunshine, but will take off suddenly on occasion (hence: "Speedy.) Speedy has no fear of cats, dogs or children.

RCHS bearded dragons live in loving foster homes where they are socialized and fed an appropriate age based diet of crickets, phoenix worms, vegetables and fruits. They are kept in appropriate sized aquariums for their length and age and provided with UVB and basking bulbs as well as appropriate cage accessories. Bearded dragons do require a vet trained in exotic animal medicine and have special housing and dietary needs. We encourage you to please research bearded dragons thoroughly before adopting.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Speedy, a Manhattan Lizard was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Lizard for sale in Manhattan, or seeking a Lizard from a breeder in Manhattan.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Manhattan already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Manhattan breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Lizard breeders who help with Lizard rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Manhattan paves the way for another one to be saved.
