We drive from Slate Hill, NY to Newton for our crickets just because the staff is so friendly!!
I also purchased one of my 3 bearded dragons from NC. They are a wonderful group of people and really do care about the animals they sell.
I do Bearded Dragon rescue, and was so happy to see that they won't turn away people who (for whatever reason) are having to part with their lizards...
Even though I can easily get crickets through the mail, I MUCH prefer to give my money back to the community (I am from NJ, and used to be a registered dental assistant in Newton). I hope N.C. continues to thrive... a wonderful place for Customers to be educated on their pets or future pets, and great care for the animals waiting for their Forever Homes!
