About Us

Proteus Reptile Trust was founded in 1991 and has grown ever since to what it is today. 

We are based in the West Midlands with the aim of rescuing reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. We rehabilitate those in our care before finding them their forever homes.  We also offer boarding facilities in order to raise funds to help care for our animals. 

The animals we take in, come from a variety of situations and... unfortunately we are seeing more and more people giving up their animals because of the rapid rise in energy bills.

We work hard to ensure that every animal is suitable for rehoming and in the best health possible. We follow strict rehoming procedures to ensure all of our animals go to the very best forever homes. 

Being a charity, we rely solely on our volunteers and donations in order to care for our animals. We are always looking for more ways to raise crucial funds for lighting, equipment, food, substrates, decor and vet fees. 

Whether you are adopting, surrendering or boarding, you can rest assured each and every animal is cared for to the highest level.
