Little Ponderosa Zoo and Rescue was originally founded as a zoo. It was not long before we started getting calls from people asking us if we would give their exotic pet a home because they could no longer care for it. Quickly we saw the need for an exotic animal rescue and the process to become a rescue began.
We are now a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. We rescue exotic animals from across the United States; approximately 98% of our animals are rescues. Little Ponderosa Zoo and Rescue works diligently to provide a safe, loving, forever home for them. The number of exotic animals in desperate need of a home is growing daily.
Each of our rescues has their own story. Many times people get exotic animals as pets and realize that they cannot meet the animal’s needs. Sadly, these animals are dropped off at shelters and cannot be put up for adoption. If Little Ponderosa Zoo and Rescue does not pick the animals up they are euthanized. Some animals are neglected, abused or abandoned. Whatever the reason, we are here to help the exotic animals
