My name is Nicole Tarbuck, and I am the founder of Rescued Rosies Tarantula Rescue. I have been a tarantula enthusiast since 2000, and currently have both a personal tarantula collection, as well as those that I rescue. I take in unwanted and surrendered tarantulas of every kind. After holding them for a period of one month to assess their temperament, health, and gender (if they have molted in that time), I place them on the available adoption list. I do this out of the kindness of my heart, out of my home, and have wanted to give back to the community in doing something charitable for some time. This is my passion, and I am only too happy to educate and share it with you.
Come Meet our Pets:
Available tarantulas will be listed on Rescued Rosies Tarantula Rescue's facebook page as they become available, and on the main website (a work-in-progress). If you are interested in adopting a tarantula, please inquire. I plan to approach local pet stores to host adoption events in the future, once I have the necessary materials to do so.
Our Adoption Process:
In order to adopt a tarantula from Rescued Rosies Tarantula Rescue, an adoption contract must be filled out and submitted. Potential adopters will be required to demonstrate an understanding of the tarantula's care requirements. There is an adoption fee of $12. This adoption fee helps to support the rescue, and covers your new tarantula and its care kit. This care kit will include a secure enclosure, a water dish, substrate, something to hide in, and a care sheet explaining your tarantula's simple needs. If at any time you have any questions, consider yourself invited to inquire even after adoption for the tarantula's entire life span!
Why should you adopt?
reptiles, amphibians, and fish can make wonderful pets, and rather than buying a reptile, amphibian, or fish for sale or finding a reptile, amphibian, or fish breeder, adopting a reptile, amphibian, or fish from
an animal shelter or rescue organization is the perfect way to add a reptile, amphibian, or fish to your family.
Keep in mind, there is a lot you will need to know when you provide a home for
a reptile, amphibian, or fish. You will need to learn what to feed them, how much exercise or
attention your reptile, amphibian, or fish needs, and many other important things about how to
house and care for a reptile, amphibian, or fish. There are different types of reptiles, amphibians, and fish
including Fish, Frog, Gecko, Iguana, Lizard, Scorpion, Sea Life (non-fish), Snake, Tarantula, Toad, Tortoise, Turtle - Other, and Turtle - Water.
Pet adoption saves lives. Adopt a pet and you'll have a friend for life! Please consider a rescue pet before you buy a pet from a breeder or pet store. Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
