Helping Iguanas & Other Reptiles

The Connecticut Iguana Sanctuary has been providing shelter for elderly and disabled reptiles and working to find adoptive homes for many, many others for over 13 years. The Iguana Sanctuary is not a public facility. The animals are housed in a small private home in Bloomfield and we are unable to accommodate any visitors

Unfortunately, we have lost our 501 (3) C non-profit status due to lack of financial support from the general public or other sources. Our yearly budget is approximately $12,000, the bulk of which goes toward the cost of nutritious food and electricity to provide appropriate heat and Ultraviolet light for the roughly 40 permanent resident iguanas, turtles, tortoises, frogs, and assorted lizards, and the many other reptiles that pass through the Sanctuary for rehabilitation and placement.

To those of you who would like to make donations, checks can be made out to the CT Iguana Sanctuary and mailed to 4 Andrea Lane, Bloomfield, CT 06002. We have set up a Pay Pal account for donations as well. We have posted photos and biographies of some of our current and past residents such as Bunny, Merlin, Castro, and Digger, all of whom have made many friends during appearances in schools, libraries, and at reptile shows. For information on iguana placement, please read our adoption instructions.

UVB Lighting is extremely important to your Iguana (or other basking lizard!) The Connecticut Iguana Sanctuary uses and recommends Mega-Ray Mercury Vapor Bulbs.
