*** WHERE OUR ANIMALS COME FROM ***
Little Ray’s Reptiles Zoo is the largest exotic animal rescue in Canada. We are partners of the SPCA in the care and re homing of seized animals across Canada. We provide sanctuary for hundreds of seized and unwanted pets each year until the best long term solutions can be found. About 80% of the animals in our care are unwanted pets or seized animals. Some of our animals were born at our facility or other zoological facilities. None of the animals at our educational events are wild nor do we generally endorse taking animals from the wild. All animals brought to us that are eligible for release into the wild get released, 100% of the time.
The animals selected for our educational outreach programs are those which have been well socialized throughout their lives and
are completely at ease with people. For 23 years we and our animals have been doing our best to provide thought-provoking educational programs about 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.
