Welcome to Crimson Exotics. We're the United States' first foster-based reptile rescue group with Kansas, Minnesota, New Jersey, and North Carolina locations. Crimson Exotics was founded in 2019. Since then, we've helped over 50 animals in nearly half of the lower 48 United States find adoptive homes. Crimson Exotics is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Donations are tax-deductible under IRC Section 170.
We take in reptiles and amphibians that need new homes from across the United States. Animals are cared for by a Crimson Exotics foster until they're ready to be adopted. Once an animal is ready, we accept and review adoption applications until we find the perfect person to adopt them. We work with a reptile shipping partner to safely transport animals to our fosters and adopters using FedEx's overnight service. This unique strategy allows Crimson Exotics to help people and animals in locations where there are limited local reptile rescue services.
Kansas Foster, Board President/Treasurer
Hi, my name is Hunter. I'm the Crimson Exotics foster in Kansas (and previously Wyoming). I love reptiles and my passion is teaching people about them. I'm delighted to have this opportunity to help reptiles and amphibians across the US find amazing homes with Crimson Exotics.
New Jersey Foster, Board Secretary
Hi there! My name is Bella, and I am the New Jersey foster mom. I have been keeping reptiles since early in my childhood, and have always been fascinated by all cold-blooded creatures. I am honored to be a part of the Crimson Exotics team, and can’t wait to start this journey!
North Carolina Foster
Hey, my name is Amber. I have both personal and professional experience in reptile keeping. It is a passion of mine to teach people about misunderstood species, especially snakes! I look forward to fostering reptiles and helping them find loving homes through Crimson Exotics.
