About Us

PHS is a fully operational, 2½ acre rescue and rehabilitation center located in northern Scottsdale. A dedicated team of 6 paid employees and over 20 individuals volunteer regularly to maintain the sanctuary and care for hundreds of reptiles housed at the facility, with the largest being a 900+ lb Crocodile! PHS works with state and federal wildlife officials and law enforcement to care for and house unwanted or seized reptiles from across the U.S. Education programs such as tours, field trips, training for police/fire/animal control, school demonstrations and more are conducted each day to provide the public with the information needed to coexist with our native reptiles and get an amazing view of reptiles from around the world!
