Home / Foster


Fostering reptiles with Wasatch Exotics Rescue is a rewarding experience that requires dedication and a genuine love for these unique creatures. Our foster program is designed to ensure the well-being of reptiles in need of temporary homes. Prospective foster parents must have a basic understanding of reptile care, including proper habitat setup, temperature regulation, and diet. By becoming a foster, you are not only providing a safe haven for reptiles but also helping them on their journey to finding a permanent, loving home. Join us in making a difference in the lives of these fascinating animals.
