Sponsor a Red-tailed Boa in Sanctuary

Red-tailed boas are native to South and Central America, preferring tropical rainforest habitats. There are two of these constrictors currently living at WRR’s sanctuary. They are each provided with specialized housing and care so that they can live the most natural life possible while still being protected from predators and cold temperatures. They live in a large outdoor enclosure where they can enjoy soft grasses, sunlight, and trees in the summer months as well as a heated warm house with shallow pools and rock walls that they may access at-will.

Sponsor a Sulcata Tortoise in Sanctuary

Sulcata tortoises are one of the largest species of tortoise in the world. Growing up to 200 pounds, they often live as long as 70 years. Unfortunately, they often fall victim to the wild animal “pet” trade, being bought and sold when they are infants and about the size of a golf ball, and then cast aside when they grow larger. The trade in sulcata tortoises has regrettably increased over the years and WRR is often called to provide care for this large, non-native species. Because they are not native to Texas, the tortoises in sanctuary at WRR require specialized housing and care including heated cement houses for the winter months.

Sponsor a Green Iguana in Sanctuary

Green iguanas are the most likely species of iguana to fall victim to the wild animal “pet” trade. Native to South and Central America, this arboreal lizard prefers to spend much of his time high in the tree canopy, basking in the sun and foraging for leaves and fruits. This sponsorship supports one of the green iguanas who has found sanctuary at WRR who was rescued in 2014 after he was found in an abandoned “pet” store where he had been trapped without food or water for several days. Fortunately, he was found and brought to WRR where he was provided immediate medical attention. He now resides in our sanctuary along with four marmosets in a large enclosure that includes a thirty-foot oak tree for climbing and basking.
