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 volunteer-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.

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
