That's good to hear that you are going to organize this. Just be sure that the farmers and ranchers know what they are getting into. Some species can be sensitive and others dangerous. These people really do need experience and knowledge before YOU should let them take anything to foster. If something happens to one of them by animal you arranged to have there, (and since you are the head of this operation), you could be held accountable for numerous citations, possible medical bills, fines, etc. Make sure you think this through very carefully, and don't forget to register for non-profit status. As I said before, there are many benefits to doing this, and you will be 'legit'. I strongly encourage you to contact those reptile rescues for advice and assistance. These people have been rehabilitating and adopting out animals for many years, their experience could be priceless for you. Good luck, again, and keep us updated!
