Do you have an exotic pet that you are no longer able to care for?
If so, bring your pet to the Exotic Pet Surrender Event on June 26th between 12 PM and 3 PM at the Myrick Park Center located at 789 Myrick Park Dr, La Crosse, WI 54601.
Area organizations will be accepting fish, invertebrates, reptiles, pet birds, exotic small mammals, and plants — no questions asked.
Domestic pets, such as dogs, cats, rabbits, pigs, and chickens are not accepted. Owners of domestic animals should inquire with local pet shelters or rescues for options on rehoming their pets.
There will also be a presentation on invasive species from 12 to 12:30, drop in any time after that for animal ambassadors you can meet and learn about, and a photobooth where you can take your picture with a rescued pet!
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.
J&R Aquatic Animal Rescue (JRAAR) is hosting the June 26th event with help from several other area organizations including WisCorps, Inc., and University of Wisconsin Sea Grant/Water Resources Institutes.
This program is possible due to our sponsor dubiaroaches.com and Festival Foods
