I would love for someone to help me operate VARR! If you are in northern va and have considered operating a rescue, please contact me. I’m looking for a partner that can coordinate pickups and care while I coordinate the adoptions. Varr is a tiny rescue, and there are no paid positions. I operate varr outside of my full-time teaching job, my family time, etc.

Want to be a foster home for VARR? Complete this form: ewform?formkey=dGJZUUxDRXY1eV9NQ21BY1Z IelNrckE6MQ#gid=0

 VARR has a store! You can order shirts, hats, stickers, and more with our logo and the don’t let it loose logo. A portion of the proceeds supports VARR!  

Also, see the reptile items at the Rescued is my favorite breed website.

PLEASE share this video with everyone! It shows what happens when turtles and tortoises are not cared for properly. Even if you don’t own a turtle, sharing this info may be the only way to find owners who aren’t doing things right. And if we find those owners, we can correct the problems and help the turtles! PLEASE SHARE!!

Dice is one of 4 South American Wood Turtles that came to us. He’s the last one left.

Please apply to adopt Dice now!

See the Animals Available page for all the critters!
