Animal Adoptions and Rescue Services: Once in awhile, a family is unable to keep their pet due to unforeseen circumstances, while some other times, an animal has come from a bad situation and just needs a loving forever home. Whatever the situation, I am here to help. My love for reptiles and amphibians goes far beyond just love of my own animals, but to also help these animals find a happy home. This is done as one way of continuing to provide a needed service for the community. If you are unable to keep your pet and would like to reach out to me regarding relinquishments, please fill out a relinquishment form (which can be emailed to you) and email it to: Eric.S.Roscoe@gmail.com. I will work with you to schedule a time to drop the animal off with myself, or another designated foster. If you are interested in adopting an animal, let me know. Current members in good standing of the Madison Area Herpetological Society (MAHS), or other herpetological society or related educational organizations will be given first preference. This gives you access to continued knowledge and a resource to ask anything you need to best take care of your new pet. Members in good standing, however, will get preference in adoptions if multiple people apply. The first thing you need to do if you want to adopt an animal is fill out an adoption application, which can also be emailed to you, to be approved as an adopter. The animals currently available for adoption can be found further down on this page. Some animals may be listed as remote, or courtesy postings for others in the community, whether due to space limitations, resources, or level of care required, and will be noted as animals I do not currently have. Aquatic Turtles: Unfortunately, we are normally unable to accept or take in most aquatic turtles such as snapping turtles, painted turtles, cooters, red-eared and yellow-bellied sliders, and others. We can always, however, consider these on a case-by-case basis. If you have an aquatic turtle to rehome, consider contacting your local nature center or environmental education center (particularly if it is a native species of turtle) and/or your local or regional humane society. These places often have the greatest reach and available resources for being able to accept and rehome your aquatic turtle. Animals Available for Adoption: No animals are currently available.
