About Us

Proteus Reptile Trust was founded in 1991, by Neil and Sarah and has grown ever since to what it is today. It is part of its sister charity, Brockswood Animal Sanctuary

We are based in the West Midlands with the aim of rescuing reptiles, amphibians and vertebrates. 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. 

We work closely with the RSPCA and often take their rescues into our care as well as individual surrenders and 3rd party surrenders i.e. from vet practices. 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.
