About Our Shelter:

Iím Bonnie Keller, and I have operated VARR since 1999. I was also the founder of the NH Herptile Society and Rescue. I have had articles published in various newspapers, and was the technical editor for Melissa Kaplan's Iguanas for Dummies (IDG books, 2000). I also wrote an article in Reptile and Amphibian Hobbyist that was published in August of 2000, and an article for Reptiles magazine that was featured in 2011. In addition, I have been a consultant for and provided assistance to local, state, and federal authorities in cases of abuse/neglect, and confiscation. None of this would be possible without the support and guidance of my husband, Rich, who has been with me since the early days of this rescue. We have a son in elementary school, and have been foster parents.

Our home is shared by furry companions as well as scaly ones.

We are both enjoy working with young people. I teach middle and high school sciences, and Rich is in the IT business. We look forward to opening a summer camp someday where we can continue to pass on our appreciation for both the outdoors and the fun that technology offers.

We ARE NOT OPEN FOR BROWSING. All adoptions are done via the website until time for pickup has been established. Appointments will be made for such, as well as for dropping off animals.

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.
