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 located in Pefferlaw, Ontario, Appointment Only


Audrey's Legacy 2022

We're thrilled to share that the first wave of turtle-residents have moved into Audrey's Legacy!

While this is an incredible first step, we have many more before we can complete Audrey's Legacy: Turtle Sanctuary.

Fortunately, our fundraising goal of $50,000 is 60% completed and over the next couple of years we will be able to meet those goals with your help. 

Please consider donating to Audrey's Legacy to help us get the project completed. This is the first of its kind in Ontario and has already done so much for turtles in need.

You can learn more about Audrey and the turtle sanctuary for Red Eared Sliders on our Audrey's Legacy page. Make sure to check out the video of the sanctuary's grand opening!
