Reptile Rescue Near Me: Find A Reptile Sanctuary

Every day countless reptiles are released into the wild and left to fend for themselves. It is an unfortunate truth of the pet trade, and especially true for exotic pets. For pet reptiles it can be hard to find a place that is willing and able to care for them.

Fortunately there are many incredible reptile rescues in the US. These organizations rescue, rehabilitate and re-home abandoned pets.

Reptile rescues can be found all across the US, but legitimate nearby sanctuaries can be hard to find. That’s why we’ve developed this tool to help you find a reptile rescue in your area!

Whether you want to adopt a reptile, surrender one, or support these incredible organizations, this tool will help you find a trustworthy reptile sanctuary. We also provide you with their contact details, opening times and the animals they rescue.
