About Our Rescue Group:

We are a 501c3 non profit reptile rescue group dedicated to rescuing reptiles!
Our mission statement is three-fold:

DFW Reptile Rescue: We take in injured, abused and/or unwanted reptiles and provide them with proper veterinarian care (if needed) help them overcome any harsh treatment by previous owner(s) if needed. When possible, we place the reptile in a loving home and insure that all needs and requirements are in place in the new home and safe environment. Provide education to the public via presentations to various schools, civic organizations, media and social sites etc., on the proper care of reptiles and their habitat. As owners and caretakers of reptiles, we feel strongly that the public benefits greatly from having access to the education of reptiles. Without this education, the ignorance and myths will continue to reign regarding reptiles.

With the mindset held by many individuals that reptiles are disposable pets, snakes and lizards often suffer from neglect, cruel torture and usually set free. Many of these invasive species adapt to their new environments, where they reproduce and become established. These species can predate upon native species, out compete native species for food resources, and spread infectious diseases to native populations. Invasive species are one of the most serious threats to native wildlife worldwide, as they are incredibly difficult to eradicate from the wild once they become established. On top of driving native species to dangerously low numbers or to complete extinction, invasive species cost humans billions of dollars each year in environmental damage.

It is our mission DFW Reptile Rescue to take these reptiles in, provide them with medical treatment as needed and give them the unconditional love and respect they deserve so that they may overcome the abuse they have suffered. When we feel the animals are well and free of physical as well as mental/emotional problems, we try to adopt them out to people who are educated on, and have shown the ability, to care for the reptile(s). If we feel that the animal(s) are unable to be placed we keep the animal and it becomes a permanent resident!

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.
