I’m fairly new to the forum but I have loved it. Im a mom of three boys (mean really) 21, 18 and 13. I’ve been married for 20 years and I am almost 40! We have always rescued, rehabbed and rehomed animals but never “officially”. We are now trying to make it a for profit because it had gotten very expensive over the years, lol. We currently have a few ball pythons, a scorpion, a baby snapping turtle, fish (different varieties) and 8 Axolotls. Oh and Spencer my sons Mini Schnauzer who is not so mini. The only ones that are not permanent for us are two of the pythons and the scorpion. My youngest has never been into it but says he appreciates how passionate we are about our animals and has finally admitted he wants one of his own. A frog or toad. My 18 year old says he also wants a beardie to add to his personal collection, lol. Thanks for the great advice so far.

Welcome ✊🏽, I'm new to the group as well. I think its pretty cool that your rehabilitating animals. I wish I was able to do that, but its super complicated being in New York City. But I definitely look forward to seeing more of your posts 🖤.

Your story is very much like my girls and I.

We take in any species with no legs to 4 legs, vet, rehab and rehome with proper habitats and care guides.
my 15 yr old is helpful but my 13 yr old is special needs so is out cheering squad.

I work in my home doing pet grooming and boarding and care for the 200 ish axolotls, spanish ribbed newts and other species

I LOVE that. I have noticed you on the forum and actually recommended you for advice to. New member “Lionfish”.
we haven’t provided enclosures yet but definitely ask for proof from others that they have what they need. I got 5 of our Axolotls from a member here in Dallas. She is amazing!!! So far I just love it here. Thanks so much for all the help you give people.

    My axie is acting woerd he was a rescue as stated in a different post he got better and now seems to be deteriorating again...again all tank conditions are OK and as should be. He seems to have some black dapple like pattern under his bottom lip? Is that normal? And his two back feet have a little wierd growth? Almost? Tiny tiny tiny lump. His capillaries in his feathers also appear darker and more visible. Any help would be appreciated
