Did you know that on average our adult African Sulcata Tortoises eat 3,600 pounds of food (fruits, veggies, & greens) every week? That's 187,2000 pounds of food every year!
Or, did you know that just the cost of rodents and other snake food is approximately $1,850 each month? This number is constantly changing due to new arrivals though. Each month we typically take in 15 - 25 new snakes through surrenders or confiscations.
Just feeding all these animals can get very costly very quickly!
The Phoenix Herpetological Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and reptile santuary that includes a surrender facility, education program, summer camps and rescue and rehabilitation. We take in surrendered, rescued, and lost & found reptiles almost every day of the year...sometimes multiple times a day. We are dedicated to providing a quality of life for these animals, which includes proper heating & cooling, food (sometimes for animals with specialized dietary needs), water, habitats, and more, even with the necessary costs involved.
But we cannot do it without your support!
