We stand to serve the greater Seattle Puget Sound area as well as the larger Pacific Northwest. Our members come from a wide area including Seattle, Yakima, and Portland. We also host a wide range of experience from veterinarians to hobbyists. PNWHS is open to anyone, reptile owner or not, and is dedicated to the education of its members and the public, as well as the conservation, ecology, and captive care and breeding of reptiles and amphibians. The Society also takes an active role in legislative and environmental issues affecting these animals and their habitats. PNWHS is a non-profit organization registered with the State of Washington.
