I feel especially thankful to Tom. Today, I took in one of the loves of my life to him for safekeeping, and hopefully, eventual rehabilitation. Seven years ago, when I was a young woman with no hint at my future, I bought a ball python I named Bucket. From the moment we met, I loved that little guy with all my heart. As a little hatchling, he sat on my head, curled into my pinned hair and slept. When he was a juvenline, he'd coil lazily around my waist and we'd go on walks. I used to get up in the morning and check the weather in portions of Senegal, trying to keep his humidity and temperature set appropriately in his enclosure. In short, I loved him, and although a relative once chided me to invest in pets that loved me back, Bucket and I had a bond.A few years later, I had my first child. Bucket and I also had our first biting incident (I surprised him cleaning) and it started a gradual cycle of distance as I became a busy new mom, but also more standoffish and even slightly afraid. Additionally, I feared for my children, especially when number two turned out to be an intrepid climber and explorer, whose trespass into Bucket's cage was only a matter of time. And so, Bucket languished alone... rarely held anymore, only transferred between his feeding cage and his home. He became increasingly withdrawn and aggressive--and I don't blame him one bit: he was neglected. After he struck me again last month, I resolved to find a placement for him. Even after I found Tom's number, it took me a few weeks to lift the phone. I did not want to let him go, and could not imagine further abandoning him. But then I finally did... and tom, thankfully, was on the other end of the line. Today, I took him in.. my friend I had raised, and done so poorly by. And I miss him, though I do not deserve to. Thank you, Tom. for taking him in. Thank you for giving me a place to send him where he will be cared for, and perhaps eventually calmed and held again. I did not acquire him lightly, nor do I now leave him thus: sometimes our pets become our family. And though I may sound completely daft to people who have never liked snakes, Bucket was a part of my family, and he takes a piece of my heart with him. Please don't hesitate to ask Tom for help for advice. And if you, like me, find yourself faced with the awful prospect of having to let a reptile friend go, make sure you call Tom and ask if he has a place, or knows of one. Animals deserve the best that we, as pet owners, can do for them... and that includes providing for them in eventuality that we can no longer keep them. Thanks again, Tom. Please don't lose hope with my little Bucket of Trouble: he's a sweetheart who just needs some remembering.

My favorite LFS store in the area. Staff is very knowledgeable, good selection of fish and even better selection of coral. Would recommend this place to both newbies and seasoned aquarists.

Tips & Advices
Pet owners usually sign a waiver stating that any injury or illness a dog suffers while at daycare is the responsibility of the owner. However, most facilities carry liability insurance and pet business insurance in the event of a serious incident. To prevent illness, facilities are strict about requiring proof of vaccination and general health from a veterinarian prior to accepting a dog. However, in an off-leash setting, scuffles or fights might occur. Reputable facilities will often hire vet assistants who can treat minor injuries and under-the-weather dogs.  For anything more serious, a good daycare should make it a priority to get the dog to a vet, and get in immediate contact with the owner.
