Pet adoption saves lives. Adopt a pet and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
We are a limited admittance shelter that restricts intake in order to uphold a standard in quality of life for the surrenders in our care. We implement a waiting list when necessary, use a foster care network to help, and emphasize adoption and responsible pet ownership for all types of reptiles.
You will receive an email message when your application has been processed and approved, it may take up to two weeks for approval. We expect you have done your research on the care requirements before you apply for an animal, a care sheet can be located on our website.
It is against our policy for you to resell or give away any adopted animal. If you are no longer able to care for your animal under any circumstances, it must be returned to Little Res Q.
Due to the over population of pets that are found in rescues and the difficulty finding permanent placement for these species, breeding is prohibited for all species. You have been made aware that if you are caught selling and/or breeding adopted animals that you will be banned from future adoption.
The adoption fee varies depending on the animal; we do not give away free pets. The adoption fee for Sliders, Maps, and Cooters is $20.00.
Delivery and Pickup fees
Regardless of where you live, there is a min $20.00 fee for deliveries and pickups. The further you live, the higher the fee will be.
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.
