An unspoken aspect of responsible pet keeping is knowing when rehoming is the best decision. Whether you've had changes in housing, finances, or simply lost interest, finding a trustworthy keeper is difficult. Emerald Scales takes in almost any species, size, age and quantity of reptiles, and amphibians from around the USA. Learn more about what we do.
We are expecting to move locations before Spring, 2021. While exciting, we cannot take in new animals until then. Our waiting list is currently maxed out and we can't accept new names on the list at the moment. Get updates by email for when we are accepting once again.
First, we mail you everything you need to ship your animals to us.
Then, after settling in plus any necessary rehabilitation, we add them to Emerald Scales.
Finally, future owners are verified 1-on-1 to ensure every animal goes to a suitable keeper. As of 2021, we've successfully rehomed over 500 animals.
Animals with mites, ticks or contagious diseases.
Extremely malnourished animals that may not survive shipping.
Mammals, iguanas, venomous snakes, or species illegal to own in North Carolina.
Animals with medical emergencies.
Animals that have recently been wild caught, unless captive raised, or considered to be long-term captive.
Emerald Scales does not trade or purchase animals with/from any keeper or breeder.
We do allow all other terrestrial and aquatic reptiles and amphibians.
If you choose to cancel the process or do not follow the above instructions, we will refund 90% of your order. The remaining 10% covers transaction and management fees.
IF WE HAVE ALREADY SENT SUPPLIES OR A LABEL, WE CANNOT REFUND any amount.
