First shipping day 2022

weather and temperatures permitting

Last week of live animal shipping before the holidays

The holiday season is the busiest time of year for the shipping companies, and there is a much greater risk of boxes running late or getting lost in transit.  So, for the safety of the animals, we will be closing regular shipping of live stock for the holiday season.  Tuesday (November 30) will be the LAST shipping day for live animals for 2021.  We will resume shipping on January 10, 2022 (weather and temperatures permitting).

We will still be taking orders during the holiday season, and they will be shipped once shipping resumes.

We will continue to ship dry goods during the holiday season.  For orders that need to arrive in time for Christmas, we recommend to get orders in before December 20.


Calgary and Vancouver Group Shipment- FREE SHIPPING! Deadline soon!

It took a bit of time, but we finally have a group shipment planned for Vancouver!  By popular demand, we are also squeezing in another Calgary group. These will be FREE shipping offers!  

In the groups, the orders will be shipped in one box to a trusted colleague, who will receive the orders and make them available for pickup.  The deadline to get orders in and paid is Monday November 29, with the goal to get the group shipment out by the end of that week.  If anyone is interested in joining, place your order as usual via our website, and mention in the comments that you would like to join the group (orders are not officially reserved until payment has been received, so be sure to finalize your order quickly to secure your order, as some species are in short supply).  

Note for dry goods: Room in the box will be limited. We may be able to ship a few very small dry goods items, but we may not be able to larger items or books.
