If you are considering adopting one of our reptiles, please review our care sheet for whichever species you plan to adopt and we ask that you consider both the cost and time that you will need to properly care for your new pet.

When taking in your reptile, we will care for and give it the best care possible until we can find someone responsible to adopt it from us. Please contact us with any questions you have about our surrendering process. 

Nate's Reptile Rescue operates in and around the Pittsburgh area.  We are a non-profit organization dedicated to the education and proper care of all reptiles. We  are devoted to the care and well-being of unwanted reptiles. We provide each individual reptile the compassion and proper care they deserve. You can trust that your pet is safe in our hands. 

If you are interested in fostering one of our reptiles either for temporary educational purposes for as long as needed or as a foster home for one of our available reptiles until someone is able adopt them. Fostering requires just as much time and energy to care for as it would be to adopt, however, we will provide any required start-up equipment. In addition, we require monthly check-ins to ensure the reptiles well being.
