We care for our Exotic Animals!

Remember, caring for exotic pets is a commitment that requires knowledge, time, and dedication. By providing them with proper care and love, we can create a harmonious and fulfilling bond with these incredible creatures.


From abandoned animals, to shelter surrenders, we deal with most cases.


Assessment of every animal that comes though our door along with treatments if needed. 


Once we know all is well we then rehome them.

Along with a certificate we will send you a dedicated adoption pack. Packed with information, tips and much more.
