You'll Go Wild Over These Adorable Exotic Animals

Hands on Exotics is an animal shelter based out of Toronto, Ontario which specializes in the care of exotic animals. The histories of our animals are varied but the vast majority of them started out as pets living in private homes until their owners could no longer take care of them and asked us to take them in. Others were seized by the SPCA or animal services from homes or other places that were not keeping them well or not keeping them legally.
 
Hands on Exotics is not open to the public, does not charge admission, or run any programs on-site. Our shelter is only used for the housing and care of our animals.
 
To fund the care for these animals Hands on Exotics offers a wide range of outreach programs. The pet therapy program at Hands on Exotics currently visits nearly 300 nursing homes, retirement homes, autism groups, blind-and-deaf groups, and other special needs groups annually! Educational programs are also available for schools, community centres, childcare organizations, libraries, and private events like birthday parties, fairs, and festivals.
