If you are over the age of 18 and would like to adopt, please request an adoption application by emailing email@example.com . Please specify the specific adoptable or general type such as snake, turtle , rabbit, etc. as we have applications by animal type.
Minerva's Den will not knowingly place an animal in an illegal location. There are many local laws which prohibit certain species. Please check your county, township and city ordinances before obtaining a new reptile/exotic.
For some animals we can schedule a meet-n-greet before application. We do not ship. Animals must be picked up in person. When we have multiple applications on an adoptable, adoption rights are granted to the applicant who is the best fit. If your application is denied, you may still apply again in the future. There is an adoption contract and fee required before taking your new pet home. When the adoption fee is paid in cash, you may take your new pet home at that time. When paying by check, the check must clear before you may take your new family member home. A pre-adoption home visit may be required for certain species. We will work with first time owners. Please understand that not all our adoptables will be suited to a first time keeper. Your enclosure must be set-up before taking your new companion home. If you will be purchasing/building a new cage, please check with us on requirements first.
As many of our rescues must be rehabilitated or at the least go through quarantine, we do not always have animals which are ready for adoption.
