We do charge a surrendering fee of typically $25.00-$50.00 for a majority of reptiles that come in, this is to cover a small portion of the cost that it takes for us to properly care for them while they are with us before they are adopted out. We would also appreciate if you could bring any and all food, equipment, enclosures, or other supplies that you have to help us care for your reptile, however, we cannot accept certain size aquariums/terrariums so just be sure to check with us first to see if we are able to take it if you planned on donating it. If you are willing to donate more then that is certainly welcome and very much appreciated.
If for whatever reason we cannot help you or you cannot get your reptile to us then please do not ever release your reptile into the wild as it will either perish or become an invasive species, there are other rescues or state agencies that may be able to help. Similarly, never take any reptile out of the wild unless you are sure that it is invasive or if you find that it appears to be injured, then please give us a call and we will help if possible. There are a few things that we can do with the reptiles that come in to the rescue which include:
Though we can also usually take in sick or injured animals and get them rehabilitated and adopted out, we do sometimes get in reptiles that are too far gone and don't make it so don't be afraid to reach out for help if your animal happens to have an issue that threatens its health. We do also board reptiles for a period of time if needed, whether you plan on travelling, moving, or just don't have the time and our rate is typically $50.00/month.
