Based in Richmond, BC, Canada. We are a registered non-profit charitable organization dedicated to the rescue of unwanted reptiles and to herpetological education. Reptile Rescue is supported solely through donations and private contributions, and we are run by a small group of volunteers.
We've been taking in unwanted reptiles since 1993 but became a registered rescue in 2003.
Our Adoption Process:
Our adoption fees range from $25 - $100 depending on species. An adoption form must be submitted, once signed and approved, it is the contract. Please read our policy on the website for the process.
reptiles, amphibians, and fish can make wonderful pets, and rather than buying a reptile, amphibian, or fish for sale or finding a reptile, amphibian, or fish breeder, adopting a reptile, amphibian, or fish from
an animal shelter or rescue organization is the perfect way to add a reptile, amphibian, or fish to your family.
Keep in mind, there is a lot you will need to know when you provide a home for
a reptile, amphibian, or fish. You will need to learn what to feed them, how much exercise or
attention your reptile, amphibian, or fish needs, and many other important things about how to
house and care for a reptile, amphibian, or fish. There are different types of reptiles, amphibians, and fish
including Fish, Frog, Gecko, Iguana, Lizard, Scorpion, Sea Life (non-fish), Snake, Tarantula, Toad, Tortoise, Turtle - Other, and Turtle - Water.
Pet adoption saves lives. Adopt a pet and you'll have a friend for life! Please consider a rescue pet before you buy a pet from a breeder or pet store. Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
