Reptile Rescue

Hey guys,

I don't post in here too often, but I've recently been helping run a reptile rescue outfit and I need to drum up some fund raising. If anyone here has the means and the heart please help us as we provide loving care for the reptiles in our rescue while trying to find them permanent homes and speaking at and attending educational events throughout the South East. We are currently working with local law enforcement so that when people call the police about a "dangerous snake" we go collect and relocate the specimen (which about 50% of the time is a harmless species and the other 50% is a venomous species). Our relocation efforts save hundreds of snakes per year from being killed, which is what law enforcement used to do previously. As you can imagine doing all these things puts a great drain on our resources, we are a 100% volunteer organization that runs via sheer will and love for these animals sometimes. Our funding is done only through fund raising and through the small rehoming fees we charge (20-60 dollars based on a few factors).

Please if your at all able, help our cause. Even a $1 donation helps, and while your on the site visit the adoptions page if you are in the market for a new reptile.

Thank you ALL!

If this post is not allowed please remove it and accept my most sincere apologies.

thats a stand up thing that you are doing. reptiles are among the most misunderstood animals on the planet.


Good luck!

There are 2 types of people on this forum. Those that have algae, and those that lie and say they don't.
