Snakes Alive! was started in 1994 in Norman, OK. It was actually an accident that created it...the City Of Norman animal shelter started calling us because they were receiving large numbers of calls for unwanted reptiles. We started taking the reptiles in, and soon, Snakes Alive! was born.
Back then, most of the reptiles rescued were animals that either became too large or too aggressive. It is still, in large part, the same way today. But, sadly there are more and more cases of neglect and abuse. As more people decide to keep reptiles as pets, more people also decide that reptiles aren't for them...
THAT is where Snakes Alive! steps in. We take the animals in, nurse them back to health, and then find good, responsible homes and facilities for them. We charge a nominal re homing fee based on the the cost to cover any medical bills incurred by them and food costs.
We have the ability to take and care for any reptile, amphibian, or exotic...from frogs, turtles, dragons and geckos to pythons, boas, ferrets, marsupials, and even the occasional rattlesnake or mamba.
On the other side of the coin is the private breeding program that we run. We specialize in Ball, Burmese, and Reticulated Python morphs. We can also get you pretty much any species you want or need for your collection.
Snakes Alive! is located outside Oklahoma City in the bustling metropolis of Newalla,OK :) Michael and his wife Christina enjoy the highs and lows that running the rescue bring...and at the end of the day, are glad they managed to help out the animals they have.
Snakes Alive! is a Rescue for Reptiles, Amphibians, and Exotics. We can handle just about anything exotic, reptiles, marsupials, mammals, rodents, etc.
