Exotic Pet Owners May Hand Over Animals That Have Outgrown Their Cages

Exotic pet owners will have an opportunity to turn in animals that have outgrown their cages or worn out their welcome this Saturday at Exotic Pet Amnesty Day sponsored by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Orange County Animal Services.

Experts from several agencies and organizations will be on hand at Barnett Park in Orlando to help place exotic fish, frogs, salamanders, turtles, lizards, snakes and birds with new homes.

Orange County Animal Services, which has conducted several amnesty days for domestic animals, will be on hand to accept dogs and cats and offer free rabies shots. Officials will not be able to accept other mammals at this event.

You can reach Mary Scott Gilbert at (850) 410-5291. For more information about Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, go online to MyFWC.com.
