DON’T LET IT LOOSE!
As part of the mission to protect native wildlife, the Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens is hosting an Exotic Pet Amnesty Day on Saturday, January 13, 2018. These events allow owners to surrender any exotic species like pythons and parrots in a “no questions asked” environment as a method of preventing these pets from being released into the wild.
Also at this event, there will be informative and educational displays and live animals so children and families can see exotic animals up close and learn about nonnative species issues.
Being accepted are all exotic reptiles, amphibians, birds, fish, mammals and invertebrates. Domestic pets, such as dogs and cats and rabbits, are NOT accepted. Every pet that is surrendered is inspected by a veterinarian, and all healthy pets are placed with pre-qualified adopters that same day. Our qualified adopters have submitted applications that demonstrate they know how to care for the animals they are approved to adopt.
** If you surrender a pet, please bring them in a transportable container that you are willing to part with. Additionally, you can bring anything involved in the care or caging of the animal that you no longer wish to keep. Anything you surrender with the animal will go with that animal to its new home. This includes caging, food, vitamins, toys, and anything else you commonly use in the care of your animal.
This event is put on in partnership with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the Southwest Florida Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area. If you need more information, please email: PetAmnesty@myfwc.com
