WHATS IS HOMIES WITH SCALES?
"Homies With Scales" is a 501(c)3non-profit educational organization that reaches to adults and children alike. We offer an up close and personal reptile encounter for the San Marcos and San Diego Texas areas.
While "Homies With Scales" officially became recognized as a non-profit organization in 2018, we have been caring for and teaching about our reptilian friends for over a decade. Through this we have gained knowledge and experience that we want to share via a positive hands-on encounter with these unique and beautiful animals.
Even though we began with a focus on educational events we quickly found ourselves taking in rescues, nursing poorly cared for animals back to health, and facilitating adoptions. Seeing the need, we began forming relationships with other rescue organizations and are currently in the process of building The Homies With Scales Animal Sanctuary in deep South Texas.
Help Us Help Them
Our goal at Homies with Scales is to show people that these often misunderstood animals are not nearly as terrifying as we've been lead to believe! We want people to appreciate and help protect these animals instead of fearing them. Reptiles as a whole have been on this Earth for millions of years, and unfortunately more than 20% of all known reptile species are becoming endangered or facing extinction.
Our goal is to help the public misconception about reptiles through education. We hope that by providing facts, disproving myths, and illuminating their importance to the world that we can help all animals: both wild and domestic.
You can help us accomplish this by volunteering at our events, sharing our info on social media, donating money, goods, and services, helping set up new events, purchasing Homies Gear, or adopting animals!
Any funding that Homies generates goes straight back into caring for our Educational Animals, our Rescue Animals, and furthering our outreach!
