The Little Zoo

The Little Zoo is a small exotic animal charity based in Wiltshire which was founded in 2011 by Gary Emery. Gary and his wife Nicky manage the day to day care all of the animals. They share their home and lives with these wonderful animals. They both have over 30 years of experience in keeping animals.

The Charity provides a home and care for over 100 species such as Tarantulas, Snakes, Meerkats, Raccoons, Wolves etc. They require a huge amount of time and effort to care for their needs. 

In order for us to survive, we rely on your help through donations and memberships. We offer animals events and displays to bring in much needed donations to support The Little Zoo.  

All funds go directly towards the care of the animals.  

Most of the rescue animals we care for can no longer be looked after by their owners for a number of reasons and we do our best to offer them a forever home or re-home them to experienced keepers

We also rescue native animals from time to time which we try to rehabilitate back to their natural environments. However, this is not always possible which is why we need your help!

All of our animal keepers are very experienced and having a good vet who specialises in exotic animals on hand is always an added bonus. But, if you feel you can help us by volunteering, donating money or in kind support, please contact us - every little helps!
