Reptile and Amphibian Rescue Network / RARN.ORG - Rescuing sick and injured reptiles and amphibians in greater Los Angeles, California


As reptiles and amphibians become increasingly popular as pets, problems with caring for them escalate. Reptile imports in the US now exceed those of exotic birds, and are second only to the vast numbers of imported ornamental fish. For every animal that makes it into the United States alive, many more have died. Of those that survive the import process, most will die within the first year of captivity due to improper care, abuse, neglect, and ignorance.


RARN rescues injured and sick reptiles and amphibians, nurses the animals back to health and finds proper homes for these animals. RARN also helps pet owners become educated in the care of their animals.


Your tax-dedutible donation to RARN will help rescue these needy animals, and get them proper care and homes.
