Oregon Venomous Snake Permit

Postby KingObeat » Sun Dec 23, 2018 3:31 am

Does anyone know how to get a permit to keep venomous snakes in Oregon? I know that there are some that you don't need one for, but most of the ones I want to keep require it.

I have no idea. here is a link to your state. also, would not be a bad idea to contact the dnr or whoever regulates them.
I know most states have different regulations. some states have to be cleared with your local area also.

not to be nosey, but, just wondering why you want a snake? I know many people like them and have them for pets, but, I like the furry animals. :lol: snakes scare me. I know a woman that had or has snakes. she kept them in her living room. her house was not real big.
the whole house stunk pretty bad. also, she had cats, somehow the cat got too close to the snake box, and they killed and ate the cat icon-sad

however, I would think you understand them, or have done research on them. Ash has snakes, I know she is very experienced with them.

You would need a prohibited species permit from ODFW. It's not easy to get since it's for potentially invasive species.

Do you know what the requirements are? I haven't had any luck finding info online.

I hope TG can help get you the info you need.

What species are you interested in? Just out of curiosity!

It's really not easy. I know someone who's gotten it for several species but when first applying they kept denying and reinspecting till every little thing was just right and she has a zoo like facility(though hers are mammals).

(2) The department may issue a permit for the importation, possession, sale, purchase, exchange or intrastate transportation of prohibited species and those species not yet classified if the department finds that the following standards have been met:
(a) The facility is constructed to minimize escape of prohibited species;
(b) There are adequate security and safety programs and procedures which minimize the possibility of escape;
(c) There is adequate record keeping to aid in tracking of confined animals or recovery of escaped animals;
(d) There are adequate procedures, equipment and trained staff to maximize capture of escaped animals;
(e) Adequate veterinary care is provided to identify and minimize the spread of diseases; and
(f) The applicant has a good reputation for care of animals and compliance with the wildlife laws.
(g) Using forms provided by the department, persons or entities may apply for a permit under subsection (2) as follows:
C) Others. To apply for a permit, persons and entities other than universities, colleges and AZA accredited facilities shall submit:
(i) A completed application form; and
(ii) A completed Prohibited Species Questionnaire.
(h) Satisfactory facilities inspections may be required prior to issuance of any permit.

I'd really like to get some russell's vipers and a mangshan viper. there's also a few cobras I'd really like.

There was someone at a reptile show who had some venomous on display who told me it can be easy to get depending on where you live.

Okay, yeah there are quite a few on the non-controlled list. That's surprising. You would just need an import permit for them then, if the local laws allow. Anything not listed or on the controlled or prohibited list would need the state prohibited animal permit but if listed as non-controlled then it's fine as they are not part of the exotic ban law. https://www.dfw.state.or.us/OARs/56.pdf
