What is Even Keel Exotics?
On our 10 acre farm-like setting we currently breed 7 different species of animals and broker many others and have been licensed to do so by the USDA since 2010. We work closely with a highly experienced attending veterinarian to develop diets and care plans for all of the animals we care for at our facility. It is our goal to practice responsible breeding, produce healthy and happy animals, and provide the unique experience of adding an exotic pet to the lives of those who are capable and desire to do so responsibly.
Can we come visit?
We understand we have lots of interesting and cute critters, but we are a working farm and most of our animals need privacy during the breeding process. We are happy to have you come check us out if you are purchasing an animal that we have available, but we request that you contact us to set up an appointment first. Certain times during the year we may announce weekly store hours where anyone is welcome to come check us out and see any animals we have available for purchase.
Do you ship?
Yes, some of our animals are able to be shipped. If you purchase an animal from us and request shipping, the animal will be sent to your nearest major airport of choice in a climate controlled area of a commercial flight. We do our best to insure that animals being shipped are in transit for the least amount of time possible by booking direct flights or ones with the shortest layover available. To avoid the busiest travel times we book flights for Tuesdays and Thursdays ONLY. If you purchase an animal directly through the website we will book a flight within 24 hours (weekdays) or 48 hours (weekends) of your purchase and email you the flight info. Orders placed Wednesdays-Saturdays will be shipped the following Tuesday and orders placed Sunday-Tuesday will be shipped the following Thursday, unless specified otherwise. Animals are usually ready to be picked up from the ticket counter or cargo facility within 30 minutes to an hour of their flight arriving and we will provide you with the location of pick-up with your flight information. We guarantee live arrival but request that you contact us if there are any concerns with the health of the animal within 3 hours of the flight landing. Flat rate shipping for smaller mammals that do not require a health certificate (i.e. hedgehogs, sugar gliders, prairie dogs, ground squirrels) is $90 (subject to change) for one or multiple. Shipping for other larger mammals that require a health certificate and possibly an import permit, pending approval from Even Keel Exotics, begins at $350 (subject to change) which is determined by weight of the animal and crate and includes the cost of the health certificate.
