Rehome your animals
Whether you've had changes in housing, finances or simply lost interest, an unspoken aspect of responsible pet keeping is knowing when to rehome. Finding a trustworthy owner is equally difficult. We take in reptiles and amphibians and get them to the perfect keepers.
First, order an intake kit below and we will mail you everything needed to ship your animals to us.
Then, after settling in, along with completing any necessary rehabilitation, we will mark them as available on Emerald Scales.
Finally, the future owner is verified 1-on-1 to ensure each animal goes to a suitable keeper.
