Co-Founded by Tricia Fry and Travis Wilkinson in 2015. It all started with a small beardie named Rose and has grown exponentially since.

We have recently become a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization. We also are applying to become a state licensed rescue.

Our mission is to rescue reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates from unhealthy conditions, bring them back to health, and find forever homes for them. We are located in Urbandale, IA.

Our goal is to educate owners and the general public on these animals and show them that they are not disposable pets. Teach them to see the complex personalities that every one of them posses.

Our mission is to rescue and educate. Our dream is that one day we won’t have to.
