About Our Shelter...
The Little RES Q is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and relocation of exotic pet reptiles in an attempt to keep them from being released into the wild. We provide a better option for those who, for one reason or another, cannot take care of their reptiles anymore. Founded in 2008 the rescue started as a dedicated aquatic turtle shelter in Toronto and now accepts in most legal reptiles as space permits.
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.
Our Adoption Process...
Our adoption process is really easy. All you do is fill out our online adoption form found on our website to get the ball rolling.
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 $30.00.
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.
