Beth... you'll have to contact Amanda Fenrick as she was one of the people to have sent a letter. I do know there were several other people, with years of reptile experience, who have offered to volunteer their time at the RRR, but had been turned down because they owned, or had previously owned, reptiles. Again, I believe Amanda may be able to help you seek these people out. There may also be several on this forum who have offered. If I recall correctly, I believe Terri P. also offered to assist the RRR in the letter she wrote to one of the newspapers.
With all these offers of help, it appears that the RRR is only interested in those individuals who have NO knowledge of reptiles at all, so they won't know the deplorable conditions these animals live in.
