Proteus Reptile Trust

We share our site with our sister sanctuary, Proteus Reptile Trust. This charity was set up by our founders many years before Brockswood was born, and continues to run today; dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of sick, injured and unwanted reptiles from all over the country. Like us, Proteus receives no outside funding, and relies on the generous donations of people like you to continue to carry out their important work with these, often overlooked, animals. 

At any one time, they cater for up to 350 reptiles, from tiny Geckos to large Monitors, from Corn Snakes to giant Pythons and everything in-between.

Re-homing Centre

There are so many reptiles in the world looking for a home - please consider adopting your new scaly friend instead of buying from a pet shop. Proteus has a large variety of species of all shapes and sizes, suitable for both beginners and the more experienced keeper. These wonderful animals are all looking for a happy home, where they can enjoy the rest of their lives.

Visit the re-homing centre (open by appointment) and chat with the knowledgeable team. Meet some of the different species and see what would be best for you. You will be guided through the re-homing process and receive as much advice as you would like along the way.

Due to the very busy nature of their work, the re-homing centre is currently open on an appointment basis only. Please get in touch to book an appointment.
