Our Rescue Program

Adoptions from stressinabox 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!

Nova & Ares

These lovely ladies will be spending their forever time here at Stressinabox Aquatics! Another wonderful set of healthy babes brought into our home. We were more than happy to call them our new lovely ladies! :) 


Cloud Jumper

This big lady came to us from a past customer who was moving to a state where she is illegal. We were ecstatic to have a healthy alumni back in our waters. She is from the first clutch of babies we ever had at Stressinabox Aquatics back in 2017!
