Florida Soft Shell Turtle – native to southern USA

We care for approximately 350 animals every day – 365 days a year. We care for animals ranging from arachnids ( tarantulas and scorpion ) to small mammals and everything in between. We don’t rescue or care for dogs, cats, most birds, or local wildlife. There are many other fine organizations that can handle those animals. We take in and care for exotic animals who’s natural habitat is in another part of the world, usually a tropical environment. These animals can not be set free in our environment, they must be in care for the rest of their natural lives. This can be for a very long time.

How you can help

You can help with the care of the animals by sponsoring an animal. Sponsorship starts at $15 for a 3 month period. Your sponsorship helps with the daily care, vet care, and food for the animal. You can pick the animal you wish to sponsor. Your sponsorship includes a thank you card with a picture and information of your sponsored animal mailed to you- your name goes on the animal’s enclosure – your name also is listed on this web page as a sponsor.

You can help in other ways. Visit our ‘ WISH LIST ‘ page to see a list of items we desperately need or visit our ‘ DONATION ‘ page and make a donation on line. An official tax receipt will be issued for your donation. PLEASE help us help these unwanted animals and help us educate people of all ages about animals, the natural world, and conservation. YOU can make a difference.
