We fear what we don't understand..
Not all pets are Fluffy!
RASD is an educational group that has made it our very personal mission to be sure that every animal be given equal consideration in life. We aim to spread awareness through one-on-one relations and public interaction, promote of the responsible keeping of reptiles, and encourage and inspire the next generation of reptile enthusiasts. Our pets are wonderful ambassadors of their individual species, and we invite you, the general public, to have the hands-on and exciting experience of meeting, touching, and even handling them.
YES! We do EVENTS!
Public events, private events, birthday parties, street festivals, fairs, car shows, schools -- you name it, we'll be there! It doesn't matter if you have a program planned with hundreds of people or if your Scouts troop needs to earn a badge -- we are more than willing to be there! Call us with details on your big day. Instead of quoting a flat rate, we will suggest an amount to cover our time and travel expenses based on your specific event. Any and all funds received by the Association go directly back into the care and upkeep of the animals. We are all volunteers, in it for the love of the hobby alone. Please give us a call or send us an email to inquire about bookings. We would LOVE to participate (and educate)!
The 2017-2018 year of web hosting is generously sponsored by our friends in Mesa, AZ at AE Herps & Exotics! Stop by and see them at the next Reptile Super Show and let them know that RASD sent you.
Our efforts are made possible, in part, by all of your generous contributions.
We appreciate everything you do for us!
