San Diego Herpetological Society is a Nonprofit Corporation serving the community since 1978. The SDHS reaches out to everyone with a passion or curiosity for reptiles, amphibians kept as pets or studied and observed in nature. Our primary objective is to create a supportive environment for enthusiasts whether a beginner or life-long hobbyist or breeder. We are a membership based organization open to individuals and families with an interest, curiosity or passion for these fascinating creatures.
The San Diego Herpetological Society is committed to providing rescue services for unwanted reptiles and amphibians. These services are offered by a dedicated team of VOLUNTEERS who are members in good standing of SDHS. These individuals take on the responsibility of animal care, rehabilitation and adoption services. We do not receive funds from the government or other institutions in offering these services and are totally dependent upon your donations to provide this service. We do not have a group facility - animals are housed in our private homes. Because of these constraints, we are not able to take in every animal. Iguanas of all sizes pose a particular challenge both due to experience in caring for these animals and space constraints. If we are unable to accept your relinquishment we will work with individuals needing to re-home animals in a cooperative effort. if you are in need of assistance in placing your animal, please contact our adoption director at: email@example.com
Note: We do ask that when relinquishing an animal you include all caging and supplies along with a monetary donation to help cover the expenses of veterinary examination and ongoing care.
