The Arachnohobby has rapidly expanded in recent years - and so with it a need for education and guidance regarding best practices for enthusiasts, vendors and researchers alike. TRUST is an organization undergoing development after much deliberation with leading arachnophiles, breeders, and importers. Our mission is to help encourage humane and sustainable culture of early-diverging spiders by providing an additional layer of certainty and confidence for arachnoculturists. Currently, no regulations or oversight regarding the care of these animals exists and this could result in inadequate care. The health and vitality of arachnids is our top concern. Businesses and individuals offering live tarantulas and/or other early-diverging spiders may benefit from TRUST Certification and public recognition of utmost standards of care. Stay Tuned!
