Sixty super snakes looking for a home this national serpent day

The Scottish SPCA will be caring for over 60 snakes at their nine Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centres across Scotland today, during national serpent day.

SnakesWe will be caring for a large number of snakes, including Sage and Parsley who have both been looking for a home at the centre in Edinburgh for over four years.

Edinburgh Centre Manager Diane Aitchison said, “Sage and Parsley are garter snakes who were born in our care. They’re friendly and great to handle but they’ve been overlooked for so long now.

“They’re our longest staying residents, with the next being Snowflake from our centre in Aberdeen, who arrived into the centre just 117 days after Sage and Parsley were born.
“Though they don't play fetch or come when you call their name, snakes are great pets for any reptile lover. It’s upsetting to hear that they make up eight of our ten longest staying residents.”

Diane added, “If anyone would like to meet one of the snakes in our care they should pop along to their local centre any day (closed Tuesday) 10am to 4pm.”

Anyone who can offer Sage or Parsley a suitable new home is being asked to contact our centre in Edinburgh on 03000 999 999.
