If you’re a responsible reptile owner, and you’d like to offer a caring home to unwanted pet reptiles through Forgotten Friend, join our rescue network by entering your email below. The next time we list reptiles for adoption, you will be the first to know!

Currently at the Rescue

As of October 6, 2023, we have a few reptiles available for adoption at the rescue. We also have others scheduled to come in, so please check back soon. If you’d like to adopt one, please review a few of the ground rules in our Code of Ethics, then apply online at and send us an email if you have any questions about the status of your application.

There are more adoptable reptiles outside the rescue, listed on Forgotten Friend’s Facebook Page, or the Reptiles for Adoption Facebook group. We list all of our rescue animals through, which is another great place to find rescue pets.

You can view other reptiles we’ve recently found homes for by visiting our Happy Endings link.
