reciousritters et escue
PCPR is a foster-based, non-profit, no-kill organization dedicated to saving and helping unwanted, neglected and mistreated exotics.We have been doing rescue work since January 2007, and have had much success on helping animals and finding permanent homes for them.We are located in Houston, TX & we WILL NOT ship. If you are interested in adopting, please view our Adopting Page.
How we started:
We began after a family friend gave us their parakeet that they no longer wanted. This sweet bird (Who's name was Cuddles) passed away a few months after.
Then realizing that there were many homeless animals out there, we decided to open our hearts to more animals that are in need of homes.
This organization is a memory of Cuddles, who live on in our hearts forever.
Animals we take in:
Birds- canaries/finches-small parrots (quaker/conure size)
Reptiles- non-venomous, (no snakes)
Small Animals- guinea pigs, hedgehogs, degus, chinchillas, hamsters, gerbils, chipmunks, and **rabbits**
Aquatics- hermit crabs and fresh water fish.
**As long as they are vetted and spayed/neutered**
Animals we don't take in:
-Snakes, large or venomous reptiles
- Congos, Macaws, Cockatoos, or similar sized birds.
-Ferrets, mice, rats, sugar gliders
Note: Call us for other rescue recommendations
Giving up a pet
One thing you want consider before giving your animal to a shelter:
Is it a no-kill shelter?
Will the shelter be able to find your pet a good home?
Are there dogs at this shelter?
Shelters are very loud and can very stressing for a pet.
Shelters are very busy and have many other animals to take care of and feed.
Our rescue is a foster home based organization, so your animal will get lots of attention and love. Precious Critters is a no-kill rescue group and we have an adoption process to complete to insure that our animals get a good home.
We also keep in contact with our adopters to see how the animal (s) is doing.
We gratefully accept any donations.
Our Wish list:
**-Food (for guinea pigs, chinchillas, rabbits and hamsters)**
-Mammal Cages/Reptile Aquariums
- Little homes: igloos, huts, pop-up homes

Q: Do you have to give a donation when giving up an animal?
A: It is not necessary, but much appreciated. We would also appreciate any supplies that might come along with the animal.
Q: Do you ship your animals?
A: No. For the safety of our animals we do not ship.
Q: I do not live in the Houston area, can I still adopt?
A: No, currently we can not allow adoptions out side of Houston and vicinity. But, we'd love to help you find a rescue organization near you.
Q: Why do you even charge at all, aren't these animals rescues?
A: Yes, the majority of these animals were rescues or owner surrenders. The adoption fee, while
never enough to recoup our costs helps in the ongoing needs, including but not limited to
vet care, of these specialized animals.
