Exotic Animal Rescue and Pet Sanctuary (EARPS) is a central Indiana 501C(3) non-profit animal rescue group of volunteers working to help exotic pets, small companion animals, and non-traditional pets.

We coordinate with animal control, local humane societies, and several shelters throughout Indiana and surrounding states, as well as local veterinary clinics to rescue and care for small companion animals, including rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, rats, reptiles, birds and more.

Our network of volunteers and foster homes works to educate on the proper care of exotic pets, and we are working to control the pet population through spaying and neutering our adoptable animals whenever possible.

For those wishing to get involved, we are always in need of volunteers, especially fosters and cage cleaning assistance. You can also check out PetFinder to see adoptable pets, and visit our adoption page for more information on our adoption process or to apply online.
