Since 1996 - R.A.R.E. (Reptile Adoption, Rehabilitation & Education, Inc.) has been an animal shelter/rehab center exclusively for wild, (indigenous) and exotic reptiles and amphibians, where the general public can bring in sick, injured or unwanted pets for adoption, evaluation and/or rehab care. Animals brought in are housed individually and cared for by a N.Y.S. licensed wildlife rehabilitator and certified reptile specialist (under direct supervision of qualified reptile veterinarians), until such time as they can be either returned to the wild (indigenous) or adopted to pre-approved homes,(exotics).
RARE does not buy, sell or breed.
The RARE hotline handles over 50 calls a week for adoptions, care advice or rehab. care. Some animals confiscated by the D.E.C. or the Fish & Wildlife are housed until they can be placed in Zoos or Wildlife centers or are used by RARE as educational animals. Our current number of animals in residence totals over 80.
RARE receives no monies or support from any local, county, state or federal program. All monies raised through donations, memberships, garage sales and educational presentations are used to cover the cost of housing, feeding and medical care of these unfortunate animals and public educational programs. Because of the overwhelming amount of calls for help from all over the U.S. we receive daily, and the added cost of running our new facility, we are in desperate need of more donations. CAN YOU HELP?
R.A.R.E. is an ALL VOLUNTEER Organization and is recognized by the I.R.S. as a 501c3 non-profit charity and as such any donation of money and/or property can be deducted from your income tax.
