Please visit the link below and place an order. And thank you Christy and everyone else that have donated money, supplies and offered time to help care for the animals!
Nature’s Edge will be holding our first ever garage sale for reptile related equipment. Used tanks, light fixtures, etc… what ever we dig out of storage and feel like selling will be there. This is to raise money for the rescue. All proceeds go to the rescue which is a non profit 501(c)(3) so it is all tax deductible. We have two storage units to clean out and down size.
Prices will be made to move stuff! This is the weekend before NARBC so perfect time to get some enclosures.
Oh and yes, boB and Moon Pie, as well as a few others will be there to say hi!

We just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone for their support this year! Here is wishing everyone a very safe and happy 2017! Today is also the last day to make your tax-deductible gift to help the animals in our care.
We have surpassed the number of animals taken in last year and are having to make significant changes to our home so we can house more animals. We have converted our garage into the animal care area so we now need a place to serve as storage. We are looking to have built or to buy a large storage shed for the backyard. To purchase a building will cost almost $7000. We are also looking for a company or person to donate the materials needed to build a shed. The materials and time spent helping build the shed are also tax deductible. So if you know anyone that would be willing to help, please let us know!
We are also completely FULL of aquatic turtles. We will need to purchase at least one, but prefer two more turtle ponds at $300 each. We can also use donated ponds. Large round cattle troughs (not metal) or the black ponds work great.
We are also always in need of supplies. We have a wish list on Amazon for supplies needed. You can find our Wish List here: http://smile.amazon.com/…/…/3OSYQVI9N2Y74/ref=cm_wl_list_o_0?
We are also set up with Amazon Smile, so most purchases you make through the Smile link, a portion is donated to NEWR. It is FREE for you, all you have to do is remember to purchase through https://smile.amazon.com/.
Donations can also be made through PayPal using naturesedgewildliferescue@gmail or by going to www.paypal.me/newr

As always, THANK YOU to all our supporters. We could NOT do this without the support we get from y’all!

Took in two Budgerigar parakeets (Melopsittacus undulatus), aka Budgies, yesterday for somebody that bought them to get them away from the owner due to their conditions. These guys have some major issues. Overgrown beaks that have been this way a while. Overgrown nails. And super thin. Beaks have been preventing them from eating properly, and from the colored dye on the beaks they have been fed a bad diet. These guys are small seed eaters, and with these beaks they have not been eating much.
The females cere (fleshy part at beak) is in terrible shape, most likely due to repeated infections of the sinus cavity and or injuries to the cere. This condition is called “hyperkeratosis” and can cause breathing issues if the nostrils become blocked.
Parakeet is simply a term used to describe small parrots with long, flat and tapering tails. There are many species of parakeet.
Budgies are the third most popular pet, right behind dogs and cats. They have been bred in captivity since the 1850s.
This pair (male has blue cere, female has brown) got a trimming last night as short as we could safely take the beaks and nails. Will take a few more trimmings to get the beaks back to normal but will take time.
