Habitattitude Exotic Pet Surrender Event (WI)
May 15, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Surrender, Don’t Release: May15th Event Helps People and Pets
LA CROSSE, WISC– Do you have an exotic pet that you are no longer able to care for?
If so, bring your pet to the Habitattitude Exotic Pet Surrender Event!
Area organizations will be accepting fish, invertebrates, reptiles, pet birds, small mammals, and plants –no questions asked.
In some areas, there are no rehoming options for exotic animals such as fish, birds, and reptiles. Some pet owners that are unable to care for their pet may think that releasing the animal is the right thing to do, however, releasing a pet is harmful for the animal and the environment.
This event brings together a collection of area rehoming partners that provide responsible alternatives to release for exotic pet owners who are no longer able to care for their pets.
J&R Aquatic Animal Rescue (JRAAR) is hosting the July 18th event with help from several other area organizations including North American Invasive Species Management Association and University of Wisconsin Sea Grant/Water Resources Institutes.
This program is possible due to our sponsor Festival Foods Paw Away Hunger Program.
