We take pride in assuming the responsibility for providing the highest quality of care for all of our animals. We hold ourselves to the highest standards within each of our breeding programs so we may offer for sale a superior quality animal. During our many years of experience breeding animals the health, comfort, as well as the physical and mental stimulation and welfare of every animal in our care has always been our first and foremost concern.


NOTE: All deposits on any of our animals for sale are NON-REFUNDABLE under any circumstances whatsoever with the only exception being Valley S and Exotics ceasing to continue the particular animal’s breeding program therefore no longer producing the animal for which the deposit was received. By sending a deposit, a buyer is entering into a legally binding contract both implicitly and expressly to purchase the specified animal for which the deposit was made. These are not “dry goods” which can simply be pulled off of a shelf at will but are living animals involved in an ongoing breeding program therefore no time frame is exact and nature must run its course. A deposit gives you a guaranteed position in line on the waiting list and the animals are sold as they are born in the same order in which the deposit was received. Also, the buyer assumes the responsibility for acquiring, if needed, any needed permits or licenses to own any animals sold by Valley Stables & Exotics in their particular area. There are no federal laws to prohibit anyone in the continental U.S. from owning as a pet any of the animals bred and sold by Valley Stables & Exotics.
