Rescue Service

Our rescue service is for roaming pets that may have got out, or some one's unwanted pet has got into your home. We do also take in wildlife that is injured and need medical attention.

About Our Rescue Service

Our rescue service is for people finding exotic animals in their homes or places of business that do not belong to them.

Have an uninvited invert or reptile in your home or business? Sometimes these are released, abandoned or sometimes an escapee.

We can help!

We also deal with wildlife; these are exotics that have been found out in woods and parks. These maybe animals that have come from other countries in containers or parcels and have been released or put outside.

Is there a cost?

No but we do ask if you can make a donation to help with the cost.
