What is the Spider Rescue Center?
The Spider Rescue Center is a website run by a spider-saving “vigilante” who works to take arachnids out of dangerous situations by relocating them out of harm’s way and educating others about spiders.
What We Do
We work to rescue spiders from habitats that they may be in danger, e.g. a school. When captured, we relocate these spiders to natural environments that are a safe distance from humans. If we encounter an injured spider, we take it into our care and keep it healthy.
Sometimes, we raise egg sacs and spiderlings to ensure a healthy environment to grow up in. Our rescuees have been given the best care possible, receiving nutritious feedings of gut-loaded crickets, fresh water to drink, and premium living conditions (luxury spider condos!)
The Spider Rescue Center’s goal is to provide a safe and caring environment for our rescued spiders as well as assist spiders in need. We also aim to educate and inform those who may be apt to kill spiders.
A lot of people, after seeing of spider, mindlessly squash it just because of an instinctual fear of these eight-legged animals. Is that morally right? Just killing an animal because you are afraid of it? No! That’s why the Spider Rescue Center (SRC) has been rescuing spiders from this deadly fate. So far, we’ve rescued over one hundred spiders, each living long and succesful lives in the wild. Currently, we’re working on caring for four dangerous captive spiders (two western black widows and two false black widows) that cannot be relocated due to safety reasons regarding nearby humans. We encourage you to spread the word about saving spiders, as you can even be apart of the eight-legged movement. If you’d like to help support the Spider Rescue Center, we’re currently offering a t-shirt to help raise awareness and funds for the care of new spiders arriving at the rescue center. You can check that out here.
