Greetings and Salutations! Welcome to our website! We are Scaly Tailz, where you get to meet "Nature: Up Close & Slithery"!
PO BOX 1393
Bloomington, IN 47402-1393
Scaly Tailz reptile education and rescue has always prided itself in offering free educational programs to schools, libraries, and other educational institutions. Our hopes were that generous donations offered from the general public would offset the costs of taking care of the animals in need, as well as the costs of traveling to and from educational talks. That unfortunately has not been the case. We have had an increasing number of reptiles in need come through our doors and the costs of caring for them have been going up. We have regrettably been faced with the decision to no longer offer free programs. Instead, we must ask for a small donation for these services. We do promise that our donation request is nominal and is way below average presenters fees. Education is and always will be our goal. Unfortunately, the survival of our rescue and the well being of the animals that come to us must be taken into account.
Below is our new donation guideline for educational programs. Pricing is for 20 mile travel distance from zip code 47403. Further travel distances require an additional donation of $1.00 per mile:
Schools, Libraries, and Day Cares: $35 per hour with one hour minimum
School Events: Carnivals, Science Nights, and so forth: $50 per hour, one hour minimum
Birthday Parties: $125 for the first hour, $70 for each additional.
Special Event: If you have an event that you'd like to have an awesome group of reptiles to liven up for you, let us know! We'll need to know the type of events, time needed, and location. We will calculate the donation required based on the event type (educational, recreational, fundraiser, etc.).
Scaly Tailz needs YOUR help! Currently, the animals are housed in Sheryl Mitchell's rental. Unfortunately, her complex was sold, and the new owners do NOT like her reptiles! Scaly Tailz needs to raise funding to set up it's own location. PLEASE, check out and donate at our Crowd Rise campaign, at: https://www.crowdrise.com/sos-saveourscalytailz/fundraiser/darinbagley. PLEASE share this site with others! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
*If you, or someone you know of, has a heated space that Scaly Tailz would be able to house their animals in (shed, garage, spare room, basement, or so forth), Scaly Tailz will pay for any and all utilities used (water, electric, gas). Thank you!
