Our Mission

The Little RES Q is Ontario’s first CRA registered charity reptile rescue specializing in one of the world's most misunderstood animals, the Red Ear Slider

Starting life as a coin sized pet, sliders often grow up to a foot in length and require aquariums larger than most people assume, and many of these creatures find their way into local streams and rivers.

As a small privately-run shelter that does not receive any formal government assistance, we rely solely on donations from the public to continue our mission to provide a temporary shelter for reptiles that are looking for their forever homes.

Adoption Policy

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.

Please note:

The adoption fee varies depending on the animal; we do not give away free pets. The
