Adopting A Friend

Adopting a pet from Friends of Scales Reptile Rescue is simple!

1.  E-Mail Us:  Send us an e-mail at FriendsofScales@gmail.com for an Adoption Application and to let us know what type of animals you are interested in or more specifically, which of our current rescues you want to meet!

2.  Approval: Once your application has been approved we will contact you and let you know!  Please allow 5-7 business days.  We are all volunteers with full time jobs to put crickets on the table :)

3.  Meet and Greet:  We schedule an appointment to come meet the animal you wish and see if you hit it off!  If so, there is paper work and an adoption donation then they are yours!

Who We Are

Friends of Scales Reptile Rescue is an Illinois based reptile, amphibian, and invertebrate not for profit rescue dedicated to the care of ill, injured, neglected, and relinquished herpetiles.  FoS is a foster based rescue with a strong drive for education and prevention of abuse and neglect.  We have NO paid staff, all their time is being donated out of their own generosity!  FoS wouldn't exist without volunteers from the President down to our Fosters!

As of February 2014 we are a charitable organization!!
