Colorado Herpetological Society
Animal Rescue Services

The Colorado Herpetological Society is not an animal rescue, however it is important to us that all pet reptiles and amphibians have proper homes. If you have an unwanted pet, please contact Steve Cook by e-mail at to discuss how we may be able to help directly or put you in contact with an appropriate animal rescue/shelter.
Wild Animal Removal

We have qualified personnel who can assist in humane, non-lethal removal of unwanted animals from your home or property. Native species will be relocated to an appropriate area in the wild. We will expect a reasonable fee for these services based upon travel distance, time, as well as the number and type of animals. Please contact us at the following numbers:
  • Denver and Eastern Colorado - (303) 916-6639
  • Grand Junction and Western Colorado - (970) 640-5344
