Reptile rescue turns 10
In March 2004, a 22-year-old Lititz resident named Jesse Rothacker placed an ad under Pet Services in the Lancaster Newspapers, offering to “provide good homes for unwanted pet reptiles.” Forgotten Friend Reptile Sanctuary was born. Nearly 10 years later, now a 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal rescue and educational organization, fully licensed and insured, they are preparing to celebrate their first decade of service in Central PA.
One of our earliest stated goals was to “get into reptile education” and they have now provided over 1,000 outreach programs, they have regular TV and radio appearances, and they helped found and sustain the Lancaster Herpetological Society for nine years and counting. They continue to partner with conservation projects like the Pennsylvania Amphibian and Reptile Survey, the Nature Conservancy, and many more. They maintain partnerships with other reptile rescues in Maryland, Virginia, Arizona, Georgia, Florida, and others.
They have helped find homes for untold thousands of pet reptiles and amphibians, both directly (under our own roof) and indirectly through our rescue network.
Local graphic artist and Record Express cartoonist, Bill Dussinger, recently won Forgotten Friend’s logo contest, earning him a selection of products.
