Habitattitude Exotic Pet Surrender Event - Fox Valley

Surrender, Don’t Release: September 12th Event Aims to Help Exotic Pet Owners

MENASHA, 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 on September 12th between 12 PM and 3 PM at the Heckrodt Wetlands Reserve located at 1305 Plank Rd, Menasha, WI 54952. 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.
