RROC’s purpose is to find quality homes for reptiles, amphibians, Invertebrates, and all other exotic animals that people can no longer care for. RROC also provides education for the public relating to exotic animals. RROC will take in any reptile, amphibian, arachnid, or other exotic animal that needs a new home and/or medical attention. We have years of experience keeping and working with these animals. For more info on the adoption process, please see our “Adoption Policies” page. We hope this site can provide a service of finding good homes, with good people for these amazing animals! For anyone unfamiliar with the term “Herp”, this term comes from the word herpetology and is used to include all reptiles and amphibians.
