Herpetological Society

Reptile Rescue Program

The South Florida Herpetological Society will rescue unwanted pet reptiles or amphibians 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. 

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


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 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

Available adoptions will be posted on our Facebook page.
