Lala’s Reptile App 2024
Our adoption policy: We will base our decision on what home would be best for *each individual animal.* As a reminder, we do not hold animals. We adopt on a first approved applicant basis. We ask that you respond to us in a timely manner. If we do not hear back from you after five days, we will move onto the next application. If you adopt from us, you are agreeing to contact us first if you ever choose to rehome. We reserve the right to deny any application should we believe the applicant is not a good fit for the animal.

Privacy: We will respect your privacy and maintain your confidentiality. All information given is only used as part of our adoption program and is shareable among our board directors and rescue partners.

With any animal ownership, the owner must be educated on their care. We understand that everyone was once a “first time owner” and we all have to start somewhere. But please be sure you are prepared and committed to caring to the life of another being. If you are unsure of an answer or what your plans are yet, and are just starting this process, let us know. We will automatically *decline* any application that is submitted incomplete.
