Animal Rescue

If you are no longer able to take care of, house, or keep an animal and have decided it is time part ways, please give us a call and we can rescue or re-home the animal for you at no charge. 

We rescue and re-home hundreds of animals per year for over 20 years. 

Any exotic pet, mammal, reptile, amphibian or the like, is our specialty. 

We do NOT take in domestic dogs or cats. 


To arrange an animal drop off, please call our office 9-5 any day of the week and arrangements can be made. 

Who we are...

Ed and Brenda Laquidara:

Founders and Primary Owners

Ed and Brenda Laquidara have spent their entire lives working with animals, from farm animals to exotics. In 1997, Ed and Brenda turned their hobby of caring for animals into a full-time professional animal education facility. Animal Adventures is located in Bolton, Massachusetts. We take in exotic animals that are no longer able to be kept by their current owners. The animals that come into the facility are either kept at Animal Adventures and used for educational programs, or are placed at other animal facilities. Animal Adventures delivers thousands of educational programs throughout New England each year.

Our Mission...

In an ongoing effort to provide a unique and memorable learning experience for all audiences, we strive for excellence in our animals, our presentations, our educational curriculum, and our business practices.

In keeping with our high standards none of our animals are wild caught. We rescue abandoned, orphaned and neglected animals and provide them with a high-quality life while using them to inspire and educate you. We also receive animals from specialty breeders.
