Sacramento Reptile Rescue Drop-Off Site

Do you have a reptile or amphibian you can’t care for any longer? Maybe you’re moving and can’t take your snake with you? Well you’re in luck, because we’re an established Sacramento reptile rescue drop-off site.

You don’t need to give us reasons why you’re getting rid of your reptile, we simply accept reptiles that need a new home, or perhaps a little rehabilitation. We don’t pay for them, but we’ll care for and re-home them for free.

Sacramento reptile rescue
We’re a reptile rescue in Northern California, and accept all varieties and sizes of non-venomous reptiles.

Our Sacramento reptile rescue can accept snakes, lizards, turtles, tortoises, scorpions, and tarantulas for re-homing.

You can simply bring your reptile to our facility and drop it off. We’ll give it expert care and will find a new home for it using our extensive network of experienced hobbyists.

There’s no size limit.

Imperfections are ok.

Aggressive animals are just fine.

Only non-venomous reptiles please.

There are two options for scheduling your drop-off:

1.) You can e-mail us at sales@backwaterreptiles.com to let us know the animal you’ll be dropping-off and your available times. Adding “Rescue” to the subject line will helpful.

Or

2.) You can call us at 916-740-9758 to schedule a time to drop-off your reptile. If we don’t answer, please leave a voicemail and we’ll get back to you shortly.

The drop-off is quick, and there are no documents to sign.

We’re available to receive reptile rescue drop-offs Monday through Friday, from 9am to 5pm.

Please help protect our hobby–don’t ever release reptiles into the wild.
