Item Donations

Our ability to rescue and rehabilitate reptiles and permanently house our Animal Ambassadors depends on donors like you. In addition to monetary donations, we can accept in-kind donations of items and supplies. Any supplies that we cannot directly use will be either sold to help fund the rescue or donated to other sanctuaries.  Please note that while we ask that all donated supplies be in good, clean condition, some specific types of supplies can only be accepted if they are new and unused.

We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. This means donations – including in-kind donations – are tax-deductible!
