I’m Bonnie Keller, and I have operated VARR since 1999. I was also the founder of
the NH Herptile Society and Rescue. I have had articles published in various newspapers,
and was the technical editor for Melissa Kaplan's Iguanas for Dummies (IDG books,
2000). I also wrote an article in Reptile and Amphibian Hobbyist that was published
in August of 2000, and an article for Reptiles magazine that was featured in 2011.
In addition, I have been a consultant for and provided assistance to local, state,
and federal authorities in cases of abuse/neglect, and confiscation cases. None of
this would be possible without the support and guidance of my husband, Rich, who
has been with me since the early days of this rescue. We have a son in elementary
school, and have been foster parents.
Our home is shared by furry companions as well as scaly ones.
We are both enjoy working with young people. I teach middle and high school sciences,
and Rich is in the IT business. We look forward to opening a summer camp someday
where we can continue to pass on our appreciation for both the outdoors and the fun
that technology offers.
As noted elsewhere on this site, we ARE NOT OPEN FOR BROWSING. All adoptions are
done via the website until time for pickup has been established. Appointments will
be made for such, as well as for dropping off animals.
