Proteus is a non-profit making organisation based in the West Midlands, whose aims are to take in and care for sick, injured and unwanted animals from all over the UK.


About Us

The organisation was founded in 1991 after a newpaper claimed a sanctuary had been opened for terrapins which had become very popular during the 'Teenage Ninja Turtle' phase.
From then on, Proteus went from strengh to strength and gained its charity status during 1999.

Not only do we provide sanctuary for unwanted reptiles, but we also provide holiday boarding facilities and an adoption service for people wishing to give a home to one of our animals rather than buying one from a business.
