Available sugar glider joeys and adoption info
All of my joeys are born and raised in my home. They are handled everyday with much care to ensure their tameness once they arrive in their new home. All my joeys are fed the HPW diet. My joeys will only go to the most suitable home. I require all buyers to have done extensive research before considering buying a sugar glider. You will also be asked to fill out a questionnaire . My gliders are not disposable and will only go to forever homes.
TO PURCHASE A JOEY
If you wish to purchase a joey from Lucky You Gliders, you must first fill out a my questionnaire. Once the questionnaire has been completed I will send you additional information. If you have any questions please email me at email@example.com. I expect detailed answers to each question. I would like to know which staple diet you plan to feed, not "whatever the breeder thinks". I expect you to have picked out a safe and suitable cage, safe wheel, safe toys, etc. I expect you to know at the very least, the information that is provided for you right here on my website. So please, ready my website first. These are my babies, I care about each and every one of them and only want them to go to homes that will provide them the very best care. I know my adoption process seems strict but it's only because I care. These are exotic animals and are not suitable for all families.
All deposits are NON-refundable. A deposit is required to hold a joey until it is ready to go to it's new home. If at any time, for any reason, a buyer backs out of a sale, the deposit will be forfeited. The buyer will also be charged a fee of $10 per week, per glider for the amount of time after 8 weeks OOP that the joey was held for the buyer.
Joeys must be paid in full at the time of pick up or at least 1 week prior to shipping. I do accept Paypal and money orders. Paypal is preferred for the deposit. Paypal fees may be added to joeys being paid in full through Paypal. Paypal charges 30 cents per transaction and 3% of the total.
If you are unable to pick up your joey in a substantial time frame, a holding fee may be charged. The charge will be $10 per week for each week that you are unable to either pay your joey off or come to pick it up. This fee also applies is you choose to repeatedly reschedule shipping. This fee is non refundable.
Shipping is available on glider purchases over $1000. Delta has made it almost impossible to ship with all the restrictions and I have to travel 1 1/2 hour away now just for the health certificate, because of this I have set the minimum purchase rate of $1000.
Shipping is available through Delta Airlines for $380 and dependent on weather. If it's above 80 degrees at any stops along the way then I won't be able to ship at all.
Joeys will be
shipped once they are fully weaned and 10 weeks OOP. I may choose to ship them
as early as 8 weeks OOP or later than 10 weeks OOP depending on how well they
are adjusting. Feel free to email me if you have any further questions on my shipping
*Shipping dates can not be guaranteed. Shipping depends on the weather and availability of the flights. If the weather is predicted to be too hot, too cold, or bad weather then I will reschedule. Safety of our babies is #1 priority.
Depending on how far away we are from each other, I may be willing to meet part way to deliver a joey for a gas fee. I also travel quite frequently so please don't rule us out just because you are far away. Send us a PM and maybe there is a way we can still get a joey to you. There are also sugar glider gatherings all over the U.S. all year long and we try to attend as many of those as possible.
I've recently changed my policy to not allow customers to my home. This policy is to ensure the safety of my family since I operate out of my family home. I'm more than willing to share pics and videos of joeys and I do have an album of my cage set ups as well. Over the years there have just been too many instances of people harassing breeders and showing up at their homes unannounced. Please message me if you have any issues with this policy. If you choose local pick up then we will meet up in a public area in O'Fallon, MO.
Once you bring a new joey home it is your responsibility to get a health check done. I recommend getting a health check done within 1-2 weeks of bringing your new joey home. The stress of a new home can cause an increase in normal bacteria which may need treatment. This is not something that happens often but it is something to watch for when you bring a new glider home. Stress can also cause the glider to have what we call stress poop which makes their poop smellier and softer than normal. This usually only lasts a few days but if it persists then you should have a fecal ran during the health check to be sure it's not an increase is bacteria causing the issue.
