SAVE A PET
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit reptile education and rescue group that operates in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia.
We take in sick or injured reptiles and work with local reptile vets to get them the care they need and then adopt them out.
We provide presentations to schools and other groups during which we bring out and talk about several reptile species and what makes them special. We discuss where the animals would be found in the wild and the care required to keep them. We then allow people to interact with a few of animals.
Animal of the Year
Severus, an Argentine Tegu and former foster animal of REV, now enjoys life as REV's unofficial ambassador.
Akumu is a savannah monitor that is only few year old so still has some growing to do. He is smart and responds to routine well. He will calm down and be a great pet for a patient owner. He does like to burrow so will need lots of dirt for substrate.
Rae is a red-tail or common boa that has been adopted.
Spike the bearded dragon is very feisty at times but he is beginning to calm down with a routine. He is missing his back right leg from the knee down but he doesn't let that slow him down, especially when it comes to food.
Norbert is an adorable sweetheart. He is adenovirus positive so he can not go to a home with other bearded dragons. This does cause him to walk a bit funny at times but he climbs and runs around just fine. He is handle-able and loves to come over for food.
Dash is a leopard gecko that thinks there is no such thing as too much food. He is slightly cage aggressive but calms down with some handling.
Speedy is an elongated tortoise. He is relaxed and social. He is possibly the result of mixed breeding.
Justin Timberlake is a male redfoot tortoise that is friendly.
Tubs the savannah monitor is friendly, curious and a bit sassy. She loves to eat and is a bit squirmy once she is out of her cage. She is not for beginner reptile keepers but will make a great addition to an experienced home.
Jack Jack is a spunky little leopard gecko that loves to eat. He is young and not used to being held but does usually calm down after a few minutes.
