Phoenix's Info...

Phoenix's Story...
Phoenix is estimated to be 8 - 10 years old. He suffered burns to face leaving some scarring to his snout area. He often exhales loudly with his mouth slightly open, leading people to believe he is hissing. This is due to his scarring. He is somewhat reactive when he is in shed but otherwise quite nice to handle. He won't eat while in shed and has occasionally gone on hunger strikes for 2-3 months at a time. When he eats, he is choosy, he will only eat f/t small dark rats. They must be dark.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Richmond 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 Richmond 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 Snake breeders who help with Snake rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Richmond paves the way for another one to be saved.
