Can you add a bit more information as to which animals are looking for homes rather than a Facebook link? Is there a rehoming fee etc?

So if someone is wanting to adopt and animal/reptile then you’ll need to provide a viv for him. As a rescue we cannot provide this in our service, as we need all the viv’s we can get our hands on. We would need to see proof of this via, a selfie with you and the viv or video call. Just so we know that he is going to a home, with an actual home for the animal/reptile. As you can imagine we hear all sorts of stories along the way, about ill-treated animals and so on.

If you can collect that would be best however, If you’re wanting an animal sending to you, via a courier service, then this can be arranged. However, we cannot be held responsible, for any costs in this process. As I’m sure you’ll understand, running a reptile rescue costs more, than we can get in.
There is an adoption fee per animal, (price varies on animal/reptile) plus we also ask for a small donation. This could also include free donations I.e vivs or equipment or decorations.
If you want to know anything else then be sure to ask away.
Kind Regards
Matt

Without wishing to detract from the work you are doing - which is fantastic and honorable - I would add a few words of caution.

Reptile Rescues are an absolute minefield - firstly, these rescues are not inspected by any governing body or impartial organisation for 'Joe Public' how can they be assured that this reptile rescue is legitimate?

Secondly, there is no provision for a rehoming / adoption fee to be charged meaning that any financial gain MUST be declared for tax purposes - as with any other gains - notice I didn't say profit.

CITES Annex I listed species without documentation - charging a fee (aka a sale) is against the law as no money can change hands during this transaction.

Certain species (fresh water turtles) can't be rehomed either to you or by you - there are ways around this but please do consider this.

As I said, I don't wish to dampen the tremendous work you are doing but to keep yourself right you should be aware of the above.

CAVEAT: any opinions expressed are my own and based on my own experiences and observations - whether you agree or disagree with them is up to you!!

IMPORTANT: if the health of your animal is giving you cause for concern, absolutely seek a second opinion from fellow forum members - your first opinion however should be that of a suitably qualified veterinarian!!
