Canherp is an association of reptile and amphibian keepers, working together to preserve, foster, and grow the reptile and amphibian hobby in Canada as specialty pet enthusiasts. While doing so focusing on maintaining the privilege to work, keep, educate with and breed these fascinating creatures in Canada.
In today’s ever changing political climate, and particularly the last short while, it’s critical that everyone who wants to maintain this privilege of keeping reptiles and amphibians as pets, companions, commercial operations, or for display and education, start to work together to show the rest of Canada that as an educated group we have protocols in place providing the needs of these amazing creatures we share our lives with.
Becoming a supporter of CanHerp will not only unite you with other like minded individuals, but it will give you access to tools, people, and resources which one day may assist you and make it possible to stand against detrimental legislation put forth by entities wishing to ban specialty pets, and group all reptiles and amphibians in that category.
Our short term goals are to have people in key locations throughout the country, dedicated to promoting and defending the keeping of reptiles and amphibians in Canada. Long term, we plan on being a strong voice that stands for the rights of herpers, and to always put forth a professional and organized unit in that vein. CanHerp’s core group of founding members are some of the key people in herpetoculture in Canada. Our combined experience, and individual efforts have proven that we can build CanHerp into the organization that is required for our hobby in Canada to sustain the privilege of having reptiles in our homes. If you are able to contribute time in a promotional or building capacity, we ask all to contact us directly or share Canherps social media outlets.
If you are an individual, retailer, pet specialty pet enthusiast you are key to this process. Without voices, without numbers, without organization, it will be difficult to push through the political barriers that exist in the Canadian landscape. We ask that you become a supporter today by sharing this group, and help us continue this process. With the emphasis that Canherp is you, us, the specialty pets and the reptiles we maintain.
Thank you for visiting our website, and we appreciate your promotion and support.
