Amphibian & Reptile Relinquishment

Please Do Not Release Your Pet Into The Wild! - It is against the law. Contact SDHS to relinquish your pet.

If you need to relinquish your pet reptile, amphibian or arachnid, please contact the SDHS Adoption Director via email at Johnb@SDHerpSociety.org. We request all supplies come with your pet plus, a donation to assist in medical evaluation, treatment and foster care expenses until the animal can be placed in a permanent home.  If your pet is injured or ill, we respectfully request a donation adequate to assist with meeting initial medical evaluation and treatment.  

Please note, San Diego Herpetological Society is a registered nonprofit corporation, a small team of volunteers care for animals through personal donation of time, space and funds to cover the housing and care of all relinquished animals.  We do not make a profit by adopting out animals, fees charged for relinquishment and adoption meet less than 20% of our costs, the remaining 80% is covered through the generous donations of our volunteer foster care team and our public supporters.  Please consider making a donation today for the benefit of the animals in our care.
