Surrender, Don’t Release! (WI)
March 7 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Do you have a fish, reptile or bird that you are no longer able to care for? If so, bring your pet to the GBAS Exotic Pet Amnesty Day Event. Area organizations will be accepting fish, reptiles, pet birds, small mammals, and aquarium 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.
The Habitattitude Rehoming Network is 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. Green Bay Aquarium Society (GBAS) is hosting the event with help from several other area organizations.
There will be live animal demonstrations, and expert advice on hand so come visit us even if you don’t have a pet to rehome!
Following the surrender event, GBAS will be hosting a fish auction on March 8th at the same venue. Any fresh or saltwater fish surrendered will be included in the auction.
