What we re-home

We specialise in non-native, wild animals.Many of the Zoos & colleges which help us by offering homes have limited resources. We therefore are not normally able to offer places to species that commonly occur in the pet trade. We try to match the limited spaces available to the specimens that are endangered or require specialist facilities.Below is a list of species that we can normally find homes for:

  • Marmoset’s
  • Tamarins
  • Squirrel Monkeys
  • Capuchin
  • Lemurs – All species
  • Primates – most other species
  • Non-domesticated Cats
  • Non-domesticated Canids
  • Asian Otters
  • Coati
  • Racoon
  • Skunk
  • Fruit Bats
  • Foxes – except European species
  • Wallabies & other marsupials
  • Non-native waders
  • Toucans
  • Mynahs
  • Any other non-native softbills
  • Flamingo, storks & cranes
  • Emus
  • Crocodilians – Most species
  • Alligator Snapping turtles
  • Fly River or pig nosed turtles
  • Tortoises – Most species
  • Red-eared Terrapins
  • European Terrapins
  • Asian Turtles, hoesemys, cuora, etc
  • Most other DWA species

If the animal you have is not on either the list above or the one below it is always worth an email as we may be able to help you find a home.
