Reptile Rescue Program

The South Florida Herpetological Society will assist in finding homes for unwanted pet reptiles whenever resources permit.

Rescued reptiles will be placed in foster care and made available for adoption when appropriate. 

Due to limitations in housing, we will not be able to take in all reptiles.

We will review each rescue request on a case by case basis. 

As an all volunteer organization, we do not have the resources to take in and care for sick or injured reptiles.

If you find a sick or injured reptile in the wild, please contact your local animal control or veterinary clinic for assistance.

We do not take in sick or injured animals.

If your pet reptile or amphibian needs a new home, please contact us with the following information:

name, location (city), phone number, type of animal, age/sex of animal.

Please e-mail the above information to:


The South Florida Herpetological Society may occasionally have rescued animals available for adoption.

An adoption fee will be collected to cover some of our costs for any medical treatment, feeding and other expenses.

All adoptions require current SFHS membership and the completion of an adoption application.
An online application form will be available soon.

If you are interested in adopting, please e-mail
