Dear Friends and Family,

Due to the evolving situation regarding COVID-19, we have implemented several temporary changes to our shelter as we look out for your safety and the safety of our volunteers.

Covid Guidelines for Little RES Q - Two people at a time, wear a mask, sanitize, contact us for help

These new guidelines for Little RES Q include adhering to the social distancing guidelines set forth by the province of Ontario.

Here are a few of those changes:

  1. Only two people in the RES Q at a time, making sure to stay a hockey stick apart
  2. Proper mask wearing is mandatory to continue your scheduled appointment with Little RES Q. Masks must cover the chin and nose. Sanitizer will be provided if needed.
  3. We are available by appointment Monday through Saturday. We are now closed on Sundays
  4. Contact-less Services: delivery and pickups are now available. Learn more below
  5. We encourage e-transfer payments as a contact-less alternative to conventional payment methods

If you'd like to keep up with what we're up to, we've launched a newsletter where we send you updates like turtle news, adoption stories, and the progress on Audrey's Legacy. You will also receive freebies you may have missed on our social media. Sign up for our newsletter and get the coolest Canadian turtle news this side of Lake Ontario!

We've expanded our online store to include our special event rummage sale*.

*Tank sales do not come with reptiles. Turtles have specific care requirements and we do not recommend a 20 gallon tank for any turtle over 2 inches.

We look forward to serving you online and on our social media as we adapt to the changing situation.

We can't thank you enough for your continued support

Marc & Family



Our Contact-less Services

The shelter is uniquely setup for social distancing and thanks to the RESQ Truck, we are able to perform our services safely through no contact measures.

Our RES Q Crew is fully equipped with personal protective equipment, soap, and sanitizer to ensure that every hand-off is safe for your family and ours.
