Featured Vendors and Recommended Products

Reptile rescue is expensive and there is no way we could do this without the support of our local vet and these other great vendors. Some of them have offered us discounts as a rescue and some of them just make the top products in the reptile community. We use and recommend each of these vendors, and we think those who are serious about reptile care should use them as well. Please click on their logos to go directly to their websites. 
Dr. Stephen Anderson at Paws and Claws Animal Hospital is the only vet we trust with our reptiles. He is the leading exotic vet in coastal carolina and our official rescue vet. He donates a lot of his time and services to help us rehab the sick animals and help us keep everyone healthy. His staff is amazing and always professional. Whether you have reptiles or furry animals, this is the place to go.  202 Giles Avenue, Wilmington, NC 28409 Call: 910-399-3768

Reptile UV sells the amazing Mega Ray UVB mercury vapor lamps. These are the best on the market and the top choice for all our iguanas. Be sure to check their Facebook page for the newest discount code!

Solar Light is the leading manufacturer of UVB testing meters. These meters will tell you how bright the output of your UVB light is and how much UV is actually coming out. All UVB bulbs degrade over time, having a meter is essential to proper reptile keeping. As a rescue, we recommend the 6.5R meter, made exclusively for reptile keeping. It has an easy-to-read digital readout and even a chart right on the front of the meter so you'll never have to guess how much UV your reptiles are getting.

House of Hydro is the leading distributor of commercial fogging machines. Foggers are wonderful for creating humidity for the many tropical reptiles we have.

Light Your Reptiles is the #1 retailer of Arcadia Lights in the USA. They carry a wide variety of lights for all types of reptiles. We use their D3 T5 lights in our iguana cages in conjunction with the Mega Ray lamps to allow for a wide spectrum of lighting.
