Reptile Corner

Reptile Corner is a reptile and amphibian rescue, sanctuary, and educational service. We have 3 goals:
— Provide a new and higher standard of care in the reptile rescue and hobby world. We are here to bring a resource that is not only new and informative, but NECESSARY in this county and state.
— Break down the walls of misinformation around reptile husbandry/care. We accomplish this by offering educational services such as: school presentations, scouts events, birthday parties, nature center presentations, and other events. We also offer options for virtual and in-person educational courses for the public.
— Aide in the advocacy for these beautiful creatures. We aim to be a voice for the ones who don’t have one; by providing a safe haven for reptiles in need which ensures they have a thriving chance away from neglect or abuse.
