Hello, snakes & lizards! Exotic rescue charity sets up in Telford
A new charity, Jelly Exotics, has been set up in Telford to rescue all manner of exotic animals, and they have already been busy.
Founded by Alex Murray in Telford, one of their first rescues was Nessie. Sadly, not the Scottish one, but a Shropshire Snake.
Alex takes up the story; "Nessie was found by walkers on Nescliffe, and they quickly got in touch and brought him to us. We treated him at the vets for a potential respiratory infection and appealed for his owners on Facebook, but with none coming forward after 4 weeks, he's found a new home with Alice."
Rescue is only part of the service. They offer rescue and rehoming, guidance, advice and pet services and hope to do educational displays in the future.
Socially distanced handover for Nessie into his new home, a snakes length away is appropriate right?
