*** WHERE OUR ANIMALS COME FROM – Little Ray’s Reptiles Zoo is the largest exotic animal rescue in Canada and provides sanctuary for 100’s of seized and unwanted pets until the best long term solutions can be found. About 80% of the animals in our care are unwanted pets or seized animals and we do not take animals from the wild to utilize in these programs. We do have some animals that were born at our facility or other facilities in Canada but 100% of the animals we receive calls about that are eligible to be released are released 100% of the time. Other animals in our care that are appropriate for programs such as these are utilized for fun, thought provoking, educational programs promoting responsible pet ownership and conservation. We hope you have a chance to see firsthand what we are all about.
Please shoot us a message if you have any questions! We hope to see you at this event, Little Ray.
