About Us
Covering all 50 States
In America
It all started with THIS iguana! Draco.
He was my first Iguana rescue and came with another iguana named
Princess Emerald. My second Iguana rescue.
They both came from Baars, where I met
Dianne Flagg, At the time, Dianne was the adoption coordinator.
Well, after I saw just how many reptiles there were that needed to be rehomed,
I just started thinking..... I can help here!

I used to be an adoption coordinator for the humane society, and then ran a 1/2 way house for homeless animals
for a while. I did nothing but
find homes the critters.

I took a break from the critters after surgery, and was not able to do the things I needed to do to take care of the animals.

I have better health now, and was so missing helping out the animals, I just fell right back into it naturally.
I work with all sorts of animals,

I'm still working on this site, and as time allows, I will add more photos, and perhaps more pages. We started out
small, with just 2 beautilful iguanas, and have now adopted out 268 reptiles, and amphibians. If you have a need for a reptile, or a need for a new home for your reptile, we will be able to help you in locating the right home, and can foster it
if there is a need.
We really love our pets,
to us they're family.

This organization is growing, we are placing more reptiles, If you would like to
volunteer, Please do contact me!
