Thank you for your interest in adopting a reptile/amphibian from NCHS. A prospective adopter will be considered a candidate for adoption if he/she is able to meet basic requirements concerning housing, light, heat, diet, and supplements needed to successfully care for the specific animal. NCHS interviews all adopters in person and holds house visits to view the premise at which the animal will be cared for.
To adopt an animal from NCHS there is a required $40 donation. This donation goes to NCHS to pay for expenses such as veterinary care for foster animals. *NCHS Members receive $10 off adoption donations!*
Below are the available reptiles and amphibians currently up for adoption. If you have questions about adoption, please contact us.
