Scottish SPCA are looking for owners to come forward and adopt 'overlooked reptiles'
Scotland’s animal welfare charity is appealing for new owners to come forward and rehome two ‘shy’ corn snakes, Hammy and Conrad.
Hammy has been in their care at the Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Lanarkshire since May 2019 and Conrad joined him at the beginning of April this year.
Gillian Boyle, centre manager, said: “These animals would make great additions to a home but sadly they keep getting overlooked, as do many reptiles who come into our care.
“Poor Hammy has been waiting over a year to find his forever home.
“He would benefit from an experienced snake owner, who can help build his confidence with people, and provide him with all the equipment he needs for a happy and healthy life.”
Ms Boyle continued: “Conrad came into our care as a stray.
“He has quite a shy personality, and was in poor condition when he was found as he was in the middle of having a bad shed.
“After some TLC, a few nice baths and warm accommodation with some proper food he is now fighting fit and ready to find his new home.”
The appeal for new owners comes in light of Reptile Awareness Day this week on October 21, 2020.
Ms Boyle added: “we are hoping to find the perfect homes for Hammy and Conrad. After spending so long in our centre, they deserve to finally find their happy ever afters.”
