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!

Bino & Bat

Sent from a loving owner in Ohio who just didn't realize how much hard work goes into these little guys. Bino and Bat saw their owner through the hardships of cycling and a good battle with fungus, but made it to us are doing fantastic!



Little Foot


Surrendered to a close friend of ours in Indiana, this giant almost 14-inch boy found his way to Anderson Aquatics. Of course, we fell in the LOVE with the big lug and he ended up staying here. That doesn't make this recent surrender any less deserving of his time on the rescue page.
