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 using the form below:


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

Available adoptions are posted on our Facebook page.

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 use the form above and specify in the "comments" section that you wish to adopt.

Support our mission!

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, your tax deductible donations will help support our rescue and adoption efforts.
