List Of FishOrphans Rehomers 

on  Geographical Area plus Speciality Basis

FishOrphans list of active assistants and helpers in various areas

 Updated March 2014

Click here to read the About Us page ( in case you came in the back entrance via Google!)

We are currently going through an extreme funding crisis so if you get no responses from some rehomers after reading this it may not be so surprising. The RSPCA refer fish enquiries to us - but they are funded and we are not. Last year our group lost over 3,000 that we know of and many of our rehomers probably incurred even more unrecorded expenses.

To be named on this list prospective rehomers must agree to maintaining the donated fish for their natural lives without reselling. or subcontracting their rehoming to other unknown parties . We are fully aware that peoples pets deserve special treatment.  ALL financial support and assistance for the scheme MUST be channelled through head office for legal recording reasons. Donation buttons can be found on all of our websites and partners' web sites.
