Welcome to Friends of Scales Reptile Rescue

Illinois' only 501(c)3 reptile, amphibian and invertebrate rescue

Mission Statement:

Our missions are: to end reptile and amphibian abuse, neglect, and misunderstanding through rehoming of our rescue animals; and promote conservation through responsible pet ownership.

Friends of Scales Reptile Rescue (FoS) is an Illinois based 501(c)3 reptile, amphibian, and invertebrate not for profit rescue dedicated to the care of ill, injured, neglected, and relinquished herpetiles. Friends of Scales is a foster based rescue with a strong drive for prevention of abuse and neglect through educations, rehabilitation, and rehoming. We have no paid staff, all their time is being donated out of their own generosity! FoS wouldn't exist without our volunteers!
