Reptile Rescue Inc. is waiting to hear back from the City of Launceston council and state government on whether the organisation will receive funding to support its operations.
Reptile Rescue senior executive officer Ian Norton said the organisation received some refusals from councils around the state but some had come on board, and others were still considering the request.
"We are grateful for those who have stepped up to the plate," he said.
"But I'm getting a bit wild with councils that won't even consider it, or offer some help."

Chairman Chris Daly said many of the bigger councils had come out with a straight no, with smaller councils more willing to help.
"Get on board and give us a hand, because we have done it so long by ourselves," he said.
Reptile Rescue sends independent rangers out into the field to relocate errant snakes.
A donation of $50 is requested from clients when a ranger goes to a job to meet the cost of fuel, but unfortunately, the operative is required to undertake the relocation regardless of whether the client donates or not.
When a client does not donate, RRI reimburses the ranger, but out of the cost of its funds.
Mr Daly said getting the Launceston City Council on board would help the organisation.
Launceston mayor Albert van Zetten said the City of Launceston had received the funding request from Reptile Rescue and would consider it in due course.
