We house more than 250 reptiles at any given time making one of the largest rescues and full medical centers in the U.S for reptiles. We are also fully licensed as a rehabilitation center through North Carolina Wildlife Resource Commission and and also licensed to work with endangered species reptiles of N.C. we do not compromise on standards or care of any reptile under our care. First we want to thank God for giving us the ability to take care of these reptiles when they need to be taken care of and also also give thanks to the Lord for what he has done for this rescue and how he has blessed us with what we needed when we needed it. To God be the glory great things he hath done PSALMS121:1-2 & PHILIPPIANS 4:13. We take in unwanted reptiles that cannot be taken care of anymore and there are many reasons someone might have to give up there pet we take them in and find the animals good homes to go to . NO animals in need ever get turned away we always make sure we can take in and treat sick or injured reptiles. If you wish to surrender an animal then give us a call so that we can get all the information from you about the animal you will be turning over to us. If you don't know that much about the animal that is fine to, please give us a call so that we are able to help the animal find a life long home.
