Home Shell Rescue is a small scale land hermit crab rescue. Our founder, Jessica Goodway, has always loved animals, and became interested in land hermit crabs ever since she saw them at the gift shop kiosks in Virginia Beach. After a great deal of research, Jessica was inspired to build a 235 gallon custom hermit crab habitat to house crabs in need.

Our Adoption Process:
We have no fees for adoptions, although donations are appreciated. We require you to have a tank set up and ready to our standards, which we will inform you of when you contact us. We also ask you to sign an adoption contract.
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.
