Reptile Rescue Program

The South Florida Herpetological Society will rescue unwanted pet reptiles or amphibians whenever possible.  These animals will be placed in foster care and may be made available for adoption to the public.  We will review each rescue request on a case by case basis.

Due to limitations in housing, we will not be able to take in any green iguanas or red eared sliders at this time.

If you have any reptile or amphibian that needs a new home, please e-mail Lenard Hughes
