UPDATE: I am still a resource for folks needing to rehome their pets, or for official agencies who need advice, training, or other assistance.
As of Jan 2017 I have stopped taking in rescues. I will continue to adopt out the last ones here, but then no more. For several years I have looked for someone to assist in caring for the animals so that I could focus on finding them homes, but no one as crazy as I am was to be found, LOL. I just cannot do the care for the animals any more at a level that they need. After operating a rescue for 19 years, I’m sad, but I know it is the right choice for our family at this point. If anyone wants help in starting a rescue, I’ll have info posted about that. But VARR will no longer be a rescue shelter. I’m really sad that this resource will not be available to help those in need any more.
I will continue to do snake capture calls, and consult with folks about the right type of reptile pet for their situation.
If you must rehome your reptile or amphibian, there is now a great option available through Adopt-a-pet, called Rehome. https://rehome.adoptapet.com/
ALSO, try posting on www.rescueme.org.
Lastly, SOME ANIMAL SHELTERS WILL NOW ACCEPT REPTILES. CHECK THERE FIRST.
