DONATIONS

Box TurtleIf you would like to donate a reptile or amphibian to R.A.I.S.E.S., or feel you can no longer provide appropriate care to your reptile or amphibian, please contact us. R.A.I.S.E.S. works with various individuals that are knowlegeable about various species of reptiles and amphibians, and understand specific husbandry/nutrition requirements. Although R.A.I.S.E.S. may take your reptile / amphibian in, it may only be until a suitable permanent home is found. Obviously, not every reptile / amphibian that we receive calls about can be housed here. There would never be enough room! We can assist you with placement, even in instances where medical issues need to be addressed. Depending on the animals' temperament and space availability, the animal may be used by R.A.I.S.E.S. in its educational programs. Please contact us so that we may assist you. We will need a thorough history on the animal.

RELOCATION

Tools of the tradeIn rare instances, we received calls to remove indigenous reptiles from an individuals' property. Many times it is assumed that either any snakes found are venomous and they want them removed immediately, or just general snake phobias ensue. We would be glad to assist with relocation (especially if it will save a reptiles life), but please understand that immediate response will not always be the case. Also understand that travel time must be taken into consideration. We cannot be expected to drive long distances, when in all likelihood, the animal will have moved on its own by the time we get there. However, if you believe the animal is venomous, DO NOT attempt to move it yourself! Chances are, it will go away on its own, but call someone that is trained appropriately to remove the animal if you insist on relocating it. Killing the animal is unacceptable and R.A.I.S.E.S. does not condone this behavior. Tormenting or threatening wildlife of any sort can cause you to get bitten. Extreme caution and common sense should be exercised.
