Our Rescue Program
Adoptions from Anderson Axolittles are local, Chicago area, only. If you are too far for us to consider, your form will not be responded to. We also
want you to expect a possible home visit or video chat, to make sure
these babies are going to a loving and well-prepared home. Since these rescues were taken from a stressful and neglectful situation, we
want to make sure they aren't put back into another. An adoption
fee of $50-$100 will apply for each rescue adopted to cover the costs of supplies used to rehabilitate and/or treat any health problems.
We rescue in memory of Mushu, one of the first rescues that ever came through our doors. We have rescued over 50 axolotls since August
of 2018. We rehabbed them, and have rehomed every single one!
Surrendered by a local pet store. Pickles is an albino axolotl that was being fed the wrong food, being housed with fish, and had lost most of his limbs upon arrival. He has a very docile personality and is one of the sweetest little guys we've had come through our doors. He loves lounging in plants and his favorite food is European Reds.
