Our Adoption Process:

There are no fees associated with our adoptions.

Ssafe Haven Society has a comprehensive process to help us find the most suitable candidates to adopt your reptile or amphibian. Our application form is on our website and we ensure that the diet and basic husbandry needs of the animal will be fully met before approval is given. We also require at least two references.

If a candidate applies and is approved for adoption, we ask them to sign an adoption agreement stating that they must treat their new pet humanely. If their situation changes and they can no longer care for the reptile/amphibian, Ssafe Haven Society must rehome the animal as adopters are not permitted to do so on their own. That way, we can ensure that the reptiles and amphibians we adopt find the best possible care throughout the rest of their life span.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

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.
