ANIMAL TURN-IN INFORMATION

This information should assist you in the very difficult decision of turning in your beloved family member.
As much as we would like to help every reptile in need of relocation and care, we are limited by the same elements that plague all other large shelters, rescues and foster centers.  Money, personnel, supplies, medical costs, utilities and other shortages severely limit the amount of animal in-takes we can care for.  In the event that we can not take your animal we will do everything we can to provide you with an alternative.  Thank you.

BASIC GUIDELINES:
  1. We will accept healthy animals when we have available space.
  2. We will only accept sick animals on a case-by-case basis. If we can not take your animal in, we will provide you with basic care information to relieve the unhealthy condition. We will also recommend that you immediately seek veterinary assistance.
  3. We may also require the enclosure that the reptile was living in. (This will be determined prior to animal intake and may not be required in all cases.)
  4. Any and all health records and other information that will help the potential new family in caring for the reptile.
  5. Completed copy of the Reptile Profile Sheet.
  6. Completed copy of the Relinquishment Form.
  7. $20 (minimum) turn-in fee (per animal). This fee is used to supplement the cost of a medical exam and any other care the animal will receive prior to adoption.
