Hey Rikki,
I looked up a few on google for you i'm not sure where your located but hope some of these might help...

Ontario Reptile Rescue

www.reptilerescue.on.ca/

Northern Virgina Reptile Rescue

http://www.boxturtle.org/pages/adopt.htm#placement

Arrowhead Reptile Rescue

http://www.arrowheadreptilerescue.org/adopt/

-these guys charge a small fee for the animals also they do not ship so if your not in their arrow i guess this one's not much help

This one has listings of different reptile rescue shelters around the world where you can adopt animals.

http://www.icomm.ca/dragon/represcue.htm

Anyways hope that helped you a little
best of luck finding a new herp
Kayla

I run Samba's Reptile Rescue but prospective adopters must fill out an application, go through a home inspection and be in the state of New Mexico to qualify. Probably not much help, huh? =)

I might make an exception if you are in Texas... I could easily drive there to inspect your home and deliver the animal. I have a variety of creatures all needing homes... some that were neglected, abused, some sick or deformed... Let me know what you are most interested in and maybe we can work something out. What part of Texas do you live? If you are interested in large snakes by chance there is a North Texas Giant Snake Rescue somewhere over there, but they mainly have retics, burms, anacondas, etc. Not sure if they are still in operation, as they had some trouble with Law Enforcement a couple of years ago. (They weren't doing anything wrong, just getting a hard time from them). If I can get their number I'll post it here for you. If not, you can e-mail me at OpticVixen@Hotmail.Com for information on my organization. Hope this helps! =)

P.S. What the heck is this underlining crap?? LOL Can someone please explain to me why various words are underlined with no apparent reason behind it?

Clickable links are always underlined. Just like every other web page in the world.

Jeff,

There's adware and browser hijackers that will highlight, or insert links to common words as well. I think that's what they're referring to.

They're seeing additional links on their page that we're not because of some software installed on top of their browser.

That would suck. All this Net junk traffic is just going to get worse too.

Rikki, just because you have some "extra room" doesn't make you a good "rescue". Experience and knowledge are also needed. Think before you end up giving a reptile a worse life for lack of experience and knowledge. Just because they're "free" or "cheap" doesn't mean they're what you want or need. It seems anyone can be a rescue for reptiles now.

If you take ''rescues'' in, be sure that they are small, cause wounded animals aren't really as predictable as you would want them to be...

Exactly my point. Then I must be a mechanic because I own a car.
I don't know where I find all the time because I'm also a General Contractor 'cause I own my own house.

Thats is as good a point as I think I have seen on this site mykee. Just because you work in a "pet sotre" that treats animals "well" doesn't make you qualified to take in rescues. Remeber, many rescues, also with a lot of time and effort, come with health problems and possible injuries ...

I work at a pet store too, and i have to say there are many animals with which i have no experience at all even thought i might have sold tons and cared for them for a good while. I'm not saying i'm selling things i don't know anything about!!! I'm saying that ''having experience with an animal'' only comes after a long time of interaction and observation with a particular specie... For example, i have sold bloods, black throat monitors, tons of chameleons, land tortoises knowing precicely how to care for them but i have no REAL experience with them. And even if you have tons of knowledge on the reptile doesnt mean you're truly ready to face every problem a rescued animal might have.

The fact of working in a pet store isn't a good argument at all... You can spend your time going from a pet shop to another and not even find a single competent person!!! Also, if you work in a pet store with no herps or even a dozen of them doesnt make of you a ''reptile specialist'' even if it is your official title at the place where you work...

phil.
