MorphMarket is excited to announce a new program to support Reptile Rescues. This initiative which we have been planning for years that has finally become a reality via our partnership with the Association of Reptile Rescue Organizations (ARRO). ARRO is a new reptile network led by Sarah Grannis Stewart of Badgerland Rescue. MorphMarket will provide Basic+ Membership 100% free to organizations who meet and maintain eligibility requirements set forth by ARRO.
Full benefits include:
- Recognition as a trusted reptile rescue based on a variety of criteria as determined by the rescue community
- A professional-looking home page with all of your organization's information
- Branded presence in our Vendor Directory which helps people in your area locate you for adopting and surrendering animals
- Enhanced listing in our vendor lists for the Expos & Events you are attending
- Free listings for animals to be rehomed in the biggest reptile network in the world
- In the near future, alerts which go out to your followers for new listings
- Other benefits to be announced soon
We have also identified several opportunities to better accommodate rescues on MorphMarket involving application process, adoption details, and pickup options. These features will be useful to our other sellers as well. We will continue to work with our rescue partners to improve the system as it grows and evolves.
Rescues play a critical role in helping animals that need a new home for any number of reasons. They are also crucial for providing education and outreach to the public. It is incumbent on all of us to support this work for the good of these animals and health of the industry.
Admission into ARRO requires a 501c3 status, as well as other considerations involving practices, ethics and educational outreach. Approval is determined by ARRO and not by MorphMarket. We believe the rescue community is in the best position to police itself.
Directions on how to join ARRO and gain these benefits are found here.
Rescues which are currently part of the Association of Reptile Rescue Organizations can be found in our Vendor Directory.
