Rescued snakes put up for adoption by Calgary Humane Society
Exotic pets were seized from Calgary-area home
The Calgary Humane Society is seeking new homes for a number of exotic snakes rescued from a Calgary-area home this spring.
The organization says it does not have room to keep the animals. There are nine snakes ready for adoption, including six boa constrictors.
Phil Fulton of the Calgary Humane Society said the snakes may be exotic but they are easy to care for.
"They're perfect if you have allergies," he said, adding they only shed once a month.
Fulton says the snakes are easy to clean up after, as feedings only happen monthly.
Jim Dyke, the owner of pet shop J & J Reptiles, said snakes make great pets but warns people to do their homework.
"People think if you just keep it in a smaller enclosure it's going to stay small," he said.
"If you feed it, it's going to grow."
The snakes are available for adoption from the Calgary Humane Society for a cost of $50.
