Roaming Reptiles has launched a new initiative, The Classroom Reptile Pet Program, which we hope to make a viral program across the nation in the future. Both California and Central Florida locations will be participating in this program and we are in need of your help! Our objectives are to provide classrooms with one or two FREE reptile “pets” that can be kept, observed and studied inside their classrooms! We plan to offer them a full animal setup, as well as husbandry packets and full support for the animal (aside from the weekly husbandry, which will be their responsibility). However, there is a lot that goes into this. We need husbandry supplies, aquariums with locking lids of varying sizes for different species, advertising and more,
Some breeders and reptile rescues have stepped up to supply animals for this initiative, but the shipping and regular maintenance of the animals collectively will get rather expensive. We also will need help acquiring supplies. As reptile keepers, we all know how expensive it is to acquire a proper first setup for our animals. That’s why we’re reaching out to you!
Your financial contributions will help pay for shipping of animals from different facilities (rescues and breeders) across the U.S. to our two separate locations. It will also help cover travel expenses for delivering of the new setups and animals to their school classrooms where they will hopefully educate children on how amazing they are, why they don’t need to be feared and why they should be respected!
We will be releasing a quarterly assessment of your donations and the expenses which can be compared with the above total that you see was raised. Our objective is to expose as many children to these amazing animals as we possibly can. Let’s enrich their lives with something unique and interesting, and prevent our planet’s future from feeling that “the only good snake is a dead snake.” While we wish we could do this alone, we know we can’t and could use the support from the community.
Donations from breeders and product suppliers are greatly appreciated and would be a win/win situation for everyone! If you wish to offer animals or supplies, please contact us and let us know what you’re able to help with!
Thank you so much and please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.
