Local wildlife rehabilitation/bird rescue facilities. Check with the humane society/department of animal regulation/police department for the names and numbers of such organizations if you don't know of any or can't find them listed in the phone book.
Herp societies in adjacent states.
Herp magazines - they often have listings of herp societies. If there aren't any, see if any of the breeders who are advertising in there are in your state and contact them to see if they know of any.
Online Herp Forums and Email Lists. Some have listings of such organizations, or folders where organizations and individuals can post.
