COVID-19 Updates: Learn more about our temporary policy changes

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.

If you wish to help, you can apply to become a volunteer or donate today.


We are over-capacity at the RES Q but not in our hearts - we will continue to work towards Audrey's Legacy and strive to find homes for those in our care.

We are located in Pefferlaw, Ontario, Appointment Only

Audrey's Legacy 2021

We've been hinting for some time about an announcement and we're so excited to share this news with you: Audrey's Legacy is happening!

We've been able to secure a private property in Ontario to begin the building the turtle sanctuary of Audrey's dreams.

Our fundraising target is $25,000 to be able to outfit the property with everything it needs to be conducive to a happy home for the turtles.

You can learn more about Audrey and the future turtle sanctuary for Red Eared Sliders on our Audrey's Legacy page.
