-Reptiles and Amphibians-
This is for wild animals that have been injured, and need a little time to heal so they can be released. I also take in domestics, depending on the situation, and help rehome to approved applicants. After getting a health evaluation at our Millsap vet, and lab work back, they will be listed on this site for adoption. I currently work with Palo Pinto and Parker (the game wardens and animal control) and the surrounding counties (also offer snake relocation).

As an adopter, you'll fill out the adoption application and attach photos and/or video submission of your setup prepared for the species you wish to adopt. We will politely advise you if modifications are necessary. Proof of a proper setup is required. If you need advice on how to create the ideal environment or need time to create your setup for your new friend, please feel free to give us a call and/or leave that information in the email. If you need to contact us directly please call or text 214-455-4145.
Due to the enormous size a sulcata tortoise will obtain, you must own your home to be eligible to adopt one.
Adoption fees are associated with all reptiles/amphibians to be rehomed. These adoption fees and donations aid us in everything we do for these creatures!!
Once your form and setup has been approved, the adoption fee is to be donated via Paypal. An invoice will be sent to the email address provided. A deposit can be made to hold a reptile for up to 2 weeks. Payment plans are available under special circumstances only. We'll then schedule a day and time with you to come and pick up your new friend from our location, or schedule to meet at a designated location. We can also offer the option of shipping through shipyourreptiles.com, but it is a little expensive, so keep that in mind.
You will be asked to sign an adoption contract stating that the animal is not to be sold, traded, or given away. If ever unwanted or cannot be provided for, the animal is to be surrendered back to Living Wild Outside. There is absolutely no judgement for having to surrender an adopted animal, you have our full discretion. As rescuers, we strive to eliminate animal flipping, animal hoarding, and essentially decrease the quantity of animals in need of rescue. We want our rescues placed in permanent, loving, qualified homes!!
All of our animals have had a thorough health check and are temperament tested. The packets that come with them will have all medical information including vet exam and lab work. They're all required to take meals, express normal behavior, and perform bodily function prior to being eligible for adoption. If you're interested in adopting a reptile or amphibian, please submit an adoption application.
This guy was the biggest of the group at 700g. He is a normal morph male. On live feedings and has a good appetite. Shy, but friendly, and easily handled. He loves to explore his tank and have time outside in the grass. If you would like to adopt Jonsey please fill out the adoption application and attach pictures of the enclosure.

Mr.Pickles is a mature male western painted turtle. He came to us as a surrender because he would not eat. As it turns out, Mr. Pickles prefers live feedings! Large crickets and fish are his favorites, but he also likes mealworms. He enjoys lounging around in his 320gal poly tank pond full of plants and basking in the sun!!
Maude is a mature female Kenyan sand boa. She came to us in the large surrender group. She had a really bad stuck shed, and was housed with another large snake in a small enclosure, which wasnt fun for her. She now has a large tank all to herself! Her stuck shed was removed and she is eating well!
Tugo is a mature male anole. He came to us very underweight and severely dehydrated. He lived in a small tank, and was wild as the dickens!! With time and care we earned Tugo's trust and now he loves everyone. Even though he has a large fancy tank, Tugo prefers alot of outside time hanging out on people and curtains!
Gary is a female Russian Tortoise that is 10yrs old. She enjoys lounging, munching veggies, and exploring the outdoors!
These two are a couple of yellow bellied sliders. They get their own tank seperate from Mr.Pickles because they prefer veggies over protein. They are totally bonded and do their little courting dance often, but because of the major size difference, we dont have to worry about babies.
Neeko is a hatchling Savannah Monitor. This little dude is super friendly and loves to munch. He spends his time sleeping in tunnels and soaking in the water dish!
He is a pastel ball python. Young, inquisitive, and friendly!
This was a reptile dream of mine! Sweet Cora is a black and white/red Argentine Tegu cross. She is so smart and loves adventures. She is a omnivore so feasts mostly on protein, and a little vegetation.
