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.
