Iowa Reptile Rescue's Adoption Process

To adopt, individuals must fill out a free application. We will have them meet with the animals available. We will discuss their care knowledge and try to match the right animal to the right person. We will make sure to follow state and city laws as far as forbidden reptiles, etc.

About Iowa Reptile Rescue

We started in March 2008. We have already taken in over 25 reptiles, amphibians, and arachnids. We do not charge to take in animals; we then rehabilitate them, take them to the vet as needed; work with them on aggression when needed, and assist in medical issues until they are ready to find a new adoptive forever-home.

Come Meet Iowa Reptile Rescue's Pets

We are located at 832 26th Street in Des Moines, Iowa. We currently operate out of our home, but are fundraising currently to obtain 501c3 status after which we will seek out grants and possibly rent a store-front. We are avilable by appointment only, but are generally there most of the time. Current information on adoptables can be found online at
