About Our Rescue Group:

The mission of the Great Lakes Zoological Society is to enhance public awareness of the need for wildlife conservation and education within a balanced ecosystem while connecting people to nature through the conservation and rescue of injured, neglected or unwanted reptiles and amphibians. We work with the public, Michigan DNR and Fisheries and Wildlife service, and local humane societies. Often times, these organizations do not have the equipment or facilities to care for these types of animals.

Our rescue program focuses on species of reptiles and amphibians that we believe can make good pets in a home setting. We promote education about the species before adopting out animals, and helping people get the right animal to match what they are looking for in a pet. Not all reptile species make good pets for everyone, and we work to get animals placed in appropriate homes or other facilities that can care for them permanently.

Our Adoption Process:

The GLZS has a few guidelines regarding our animal adoptions:

An adoption agreement must be signed with any animal adoption. You may get a copy of the agreement from our website or by email. An adoption fee is generally charged for an animal adoption to help cover our costs in treating medical issues and providing care for the animal.

Because reptiles have very specific housing needs, you will be required to have proper enclosure, lighting, heat, UV, and supplements appropriate for the animal you are adopting.
You will be instructed on proper husbandry about the animal you are adopting.

The GLZS reserves the right to refuse adoption to anyone without cause, or withdraw an animal from an adoption at any time.

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.
