Hello,

I wonder if anyone could help me.
I am trying to make a list of proper reptile rescues so that we can add them to our links section, however i would like recommendations please as there are a number of reptile rescues out there that are more interested in selling anything they get in.

If anyone would like to post up genuine, recomended rescues with a link to their site i would be very greatfull.

Thanks

How do you know?

How do you know that the supposed Reptile Rescue you are calling is really a Reptile Rescue and not someone that's just out to make a quick buck? I have heard horror stories about so called Reptile Rescues. People can also give you the impression that they know exactly what they're doing and in reality know no more than the average person. For example my friend Emma knows a lot about keeping snakes because she has sat and listened to me for hours on end talking about my snakes. She could walk into my local pet store who are really good at making sure you know what you are doing before selling a reptile and purchase a Royal Python and they would be none the wiser. As you have probably guessed I have had a run in with one of these so called Reptile Rescues and I am now very weary.

I believe that there are genuine people out there doing it for the reptiles but how do you tell them apart?

Lorna you are quite right in what you say but the rescuers on here have been working in this field for quite sometime and do have good reputations.
