I live in edinburgh and I have the facilities to start an invert rescue center.
If you have too many inverts in your colony or if you just dont want them anymore I would be happy to take them off your hands.
If you are interested just reply to this post.
Many thanks,
Dylan

I helped ad edinburgh zoo in the discovery centre with all of the inverts and the mammals and reptiles. I am not a member of bts as I do not have any tarantulas, or scorpions for that matter. I have more knowlege and experience with herbiviorus inverts, especially leaf insects, stick insects giant millipedes, cockroach and giant snails (kind of) as I have owned all of these but do not own any currently as I donated my millipedes and cockroach colonies (all I had at that point) to Edinburgh Zoo for a six month period (5 months to go!) for breeding purposes.

well, a simple search of the internet and facebook will give you plenty of hits of places that offer free exchange and the rehoming of inverts.

what you will find is that the majority of 'rehomes' go to established names in the hobby which is to be expected to be perfectly honest with you

so if your interest is mainly herbivorous creatures are you a member of either the PSG or the AES?

Forgot to say that by facilities I mean ALOT of empty enclosures.
if the owner wants me to pay for them for anyreason I would be willing to as I am doing this for the inverts sake not my own.

Can you name a few specific species you have kept and for how long? Genuinely curious.

Since your after rescuing invert's do you know how to look after tarantula's old world and new world. scorpion's and each of there needs . You may get better reply's if you post photo's of your enclosure's and prove to the forum you can really look after the animals you seek to look after. Don't get me wrong if your genuine then i for one wish you all the best but i know i love my collection of invert's with a passion .

Im thinking about requesting something similar, if anyone has any free tarantulas you would like to send me then I will gladly "rescue" them.
do you have references from hobby peers? :lol2:

Only word of mouth I'm afraid Steve but I'm currently "very busy" rescuing blue species of tarantula, if you know of any that need a "good steady home" then you know where I am.

: victory:
:lol2::lol2::lol2::lol2::lol2::lol2::lol2:

hang on, you just almost gave away dozens of blue spiders (may as well have given away the price they were)

I'm in a similar situation. I specialise in rehoming Sterling doshious or UK pounds. Ive been a member of Lloyds TSB and Halifax UK pound societies and have a very secure metal locking enclosure for them. Please feel free to contact me if you need my rehoming services.
