NJ Libraries Summer Reading Program
In support of the library summer reading program 2017 of
“Build a Better World”
Building A Better World-Rescuing Reptiles!
Since 1996 Snakes-N-Scales has been rescuing reptiles from all sorts of places and using them to teach people about these amazing animals.
We have pulled alligators out of people’s pools, (in NJ!) and had them brought to us having been hit by cars. We have taken in frostbitten lizards, snakes abandoned in parking lots and in the garbage, hatched dug up turtle eggs, various animals running down streets, even the Turnpike! and appearing suddenly in people’s homes who didn’t own them. And, of course, from pet owners disappointed, or unable to cope, with their reptile pet.
We are a unique organization, (if we do say so ourselves!) in that our expertise allows us to care for our animals medically. Animals that would cost too much for anyone to reasonably spend at the veterinarians’ have a chance of survival with us- and many of those make great stories!
That’s what we’re all about, and that’s what we’d like to present, the personal stories of a few of “our scaly kids” and how we have contributed to our world through our care of them. Of course the act of telling these stories will engender compassion in the audience, continuing the mission of Building A Better World, right there in your library!
The program will concentrate primarily on the rescue and personal stories of the animals presented, though we will always include relevant information on their habits in the wild as well. And a good dose of humor will always be injected into the proceedings!
This program is available in 2 versions, a larger
and a smaller, to all libraries in NJ and
Southern NY State for either
$400 or $300.
We will be happy to consider a further discount if two
libraries can coordinate 2 shows close together in
space and time.
