** IF NO ANSWER, LEAVE A MESSAGE.**
I'm holding babies and will respond as soon as my hands are empty.
PET ADOPTION ARE AS STATED:
You will need to call for availability.
**For your benefit: **
You will need to know what INBREEDING is, (just a quick search)
and why this should be so important to you as a buyer!!
With gliders only having 2 births a year, 'TRUE' breeders do not always have your chosen age, color and sex, just sitting on a shelf waiting for someone to come by.
Our sugar gliders are in high demand, and you may very well have to place your order to reserve a particular color/sex, depending on what you decide.
This does require a deposit to be placed, to hold them, til completely weaned. All deposits/fees are non-refundable.
If you favorite color is not available/ weaned yet, a deposit is placed to 'hold' the gliders of your choosing, (colors, sexes, etc.). It 'reserves' those joeys for the gliders exclusively and prevents from sale, as well as it assures the joeys have a qualified home waiting for them when when they are ready. Otherwise- how else do you really know the true age of your gliders?
You will be notified when ready and will have 10 days til pick up and adoption is completed. After 10 days have passed glider/s are subject to go back up for adoption.
**All deposits are non-refundable. This is a standard practice among breeders; thus the meaning of the word 'deposit'.**
Sugar Glider prices vary for many reasons. Rarity in birth as well as color, both play a huge part, as with the leucistic's, cremino's, mosaics, platinum's, mosaic's etc...
* 'Generations', can play a huge part in pricing with White Faced and White Face Blondes.
* Then you get into heterozygous= Hets
* Percentages also play a large part of the pricing
* Breeding and non-breeding will also need consideration
This is an important reason for you and your breeder to talk and to help you to figure out what you want. You should not take what breeder happens to have available. Why buy size 5 shoe, when you wear a seven?
Education is a valuable resource that should be expected from your breeder.
Since you really don't know what questions need to be asked (until you have your joey home), will the breeder be available both before AND after the adoption? Or will they just send you to a chat room?
CONSIDER: Collecting money for an animal, is easy. How much time does the breeder "happily" spend with you BEFORE the adoption?
We have found, 15 to 20 mins. on the phone is the most usual, IF they are willing to give any advise at all.
This is not acceptable!
Personally, I DO NOT want to deal with a person who is not willing to actually 'talk' to me. Nor do I want to be 'told' thru texting, about the glider OR the breeder.
Looking from both sides: As a Breeder or buyer,- I NEED eye to eye contact. I need to HEAR the concern in a person's voice. There are just to many things to know and to many things to consider, and to many vital things are missed, when attempting an adoption thru email/texting!
MAKE THE "BREEDER", EARN THEIR MONEY.
After all, the gliders are the ones doing all 'the work". Don't make them the ones who do the suffering because of laziness on the breeders side or impulsiveness on the buyers side.
It is frowned upon (and not in good taste), to take up 'hours' of a breeders valuable time when you go elsewhere to purchase; simply because you can "get one faster". So we have consultations available. Call for fee and appointment time. But get it first hand and see for yourself. THEN, make up your mind!
Remember, a true breeder spends their time with the gliders, so my time is very crucial and valuable.
GLIDER PRICES WILL RANGE EASILY FROM: FREE TO $5000.00,
and everything in between!
EXAMPLE: CRAIGS LIST -FREE TO $1000.00
REASON: After all, That's what 'THEY' paid for them from 'THE MALL'. via Pocket Pets.
But they are wild, never being touched by a human hand, they bite, to old, or worse, NOT WEANED yet. Many have carried parasites. they may NEVER tame down due to neurological problems from inbreeding, that is "IF" they actually live! They are easily stressed to death because they are so scared of people that they run all over cage or won't even come out of their pouch.
A REAL BREEDER WOULD NEVER ALLOW THE GLIDERS "THAT THEY BRED", TO END UP ON CRAIGSIST!
A required and non-refundable deposit, of at least 1/3 of cost of gliders will hold joeys til weaned! Once weaned/ready for new home. Glider/s must be picked up within 10 days or a $10.00 a day fee applies.
Every Colored gliders such as:
Leucistics , Creminos, mosaics, platinum's etc. and all hets, will require a cage mate to go with it . We will provide a less expensive cage mate if they are sold on a pet only contract.....No glider should ever be sold (or kept), single! Depression is hard to spot in humans. How do you KNOW your glider is not lonely? They can't tell you - but you will find out, after it's to late. Please, Do Not take the chance to see how long that will take. Self mutilation is a horrible thing to see.
If not available: RESERVE YOUR JOEY NOW!
(They REALLY do go before mom has a chance to even name them)!
My "STANDARDS/CLASSIC GRAYS" are defined as:
A Joey from Cinnamon &/or Butter Cream &/or standard gray parents,
OR a joey from:
a 2nd generation White Face Blonde & standard gray parent,
that have bars under their ears; are considered to us, as STANDARDS!
Always be sure before you place that deposit.
♥ Just call to set up an appointment for a consultation visit.♥If color/sex, you want is not available at the time, you can ask to be notified in case prior adoption fails. Such as perspective parents not prepared or educated enough, or adoption fails for any reason.This may seem pretty timely to you while deciding, but remember, they only have 2 births a year Plus we can not tell the mommies what we are waiting for. So if you are not willing to wait for your babies, a MILL BRED glider as those from the mall or a person who can "get you one", is the only place you will get "A GLIDER TO GO". We don't mass produce!
AFTER ALL: " HAPPY PARENTS mean HAPPY BABIES"
We will get you educated & ready so you know everything about your babies, and you are ready to welcome them home, with open & prepared arms!
WE DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE,
FOR THE BEST INTEREST OF THE SUGGIES -FIRST!
Call us to setup your appointment to place your deposit to hold some babies,
to get to see, first hand.
FOR THE GOOD OF THE BREEDER:
If they are nice enough to allow you to come to their home, spend time educating you & showing the proper care, show appreciation of their time,... BE ON TIME!
