RES Q Foster Program is now FULL

Thank you so much for the wonderful response to our call for foster homes!

Fostering is a great opportunity to explore turtle care without the 50 year commitment as an owner. Instead, we help you set up a custom RES Quarters at a predetermined location*

If you have a full set-up for a specific reptile and would like to foster that species, please contact us.


Adoption Event Helper:

The Little RES Q has an active outreach program and participates in animal adoption and education events throughout the year across Ontario. 

Through adopt-a-thons, presentations and information booths at trade shows and events, we are working to educate the public about the importance of proper care of pet reptiles and finding available pets new forever homes.

We’re looking for volunteers to help us at these events and training is provided.

If you would like Little RES Q to attend your 2021-2022 events, please contact us.



Shelter Care Attendant:

This is a dirty job but it's very rewarding!

We need folks to come to the shelter once or twice a week to help clean the shelter and feed the animals. You can't be afraid to get your hands dirty. You will wash food and water bowls, help clean community tanks and filters, and help keep the rescue clean and tidy.

Other responsibilities include assisting with adoptions and surrenders that arrive during the day, and assist the shelter staff with medicating and caring for any sick or injured animals as they require.

Please Note: The Little RES Q shelter is located in Pefferlaw, Ontario. There is no access to public transit and will require access to a reliable vehicle.


Crafting for a Cause

Crafting is a fantastic way to get involved and show off your talent!

We are accepting all kinds of crafts, from sewing to perler beads and more.

It's purely at your leisure with crafting drop-off locations throughout the GTA. Please note that there are temporary measures in place to protect our volunteers from the spread of COVID-19 that include contact-less drop off.



Transporting Animals (Turtle Taxi):

We’re searching for volunteer drivers who are willing to make occasional adoption drop-offs, surrender pick-ups and equipment and supply transports throughout the GTA area.  Interested volunteers do not need to have any experience with reptiles to apply, but must have access to a vehicle to reach the main Pefferlaw shelter.
