SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio — Maybe this Christmas you got a snake or a turtle but four months down the road you realize you can't take care of it, well that's when Herps Alive Foundation saves the day.

The Non-profit foundation takes in unwanted, abused, and neglected reptiles either to rehome or to keep on "sanctuary" contracts. Inside their building you can find anything from pythons, snapping turtles, and lizards of all sorts.

They also do adoptions, but you have to go through the application process to ensure you are equipped to take care of the animal properly.
