Animal Rescue Program

We offer rescue and rehoming services for small exotic pets, including small mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates.

  • We do not accept dogs, cats, or large farm animals. We love all animals, but our facilities and staff are specialized for small animals.

  • Birds and fish may be considered but will likely be transferred to a specialized rescue

  • Wildlife that is injured or orphaned should be brought to a Wildlife Rehabilitation Facility

Lost Woods staff are dedicated to helping you through your rescue situation with compassion and experience.  If we can't help, we will try to find someone who can!
