At Friends of Scales reptile rescue, we are dedicated to doing everything in our power to find the best possible homes for all of our adoptable animals! This dedication has led us to developing some guidelines for potential adopters in order to make sure that the animal and their new home are totally compatible. Adopters looking to take home their very first cold blooded friend are encouraged to submit an application so that we can provide as much information and guidance as needed to ensure the best possible care experience for both animal and owner.
Thinking about adopting multiple animals at different times? Don’t worry, this form is filled out one time by you and remains in our records so we can reference the information for repeat adopters and saving you and us both on some paperwork. If you have relinquished to our rescue before, you are still encouraged to fill out an application for an animal if you so desire. Conditions of the relinquishment and information about the adopter and previously relinquished animal will determine the outcome of the attempt to adopt.
If your application is denied, we will tell you why and allow you to reapply in 3-6 months.
- Adopters MUST be over 18 years of age. If you are under 18, your parents or legal guardian must submit this form and appear at any and all adoptions.
- Certain reptiles and amphibians require permits. You will have to show proof of these permits prior to individual adoptions or that adoption will be denied.
- If it is discovered that you have not been truthful on this form, Friends of Scales has the right to decline your application and ban you from adoptions. Please, be truthful.
We look forward to helping you find your perfect pet!
