Habitattitude Pet Amnesty Day
Surrender your exotic pet (no domestics e.g. cats, dogs) to Kingdom Animalia Exotic Animal Rescue and the University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute. Pets will find a new home with a qualified adopter. Surrendering a pet, as opposed to releasing it into the wild, is better for the pet and better for the environment. You can also stop by to speak with experts about being a responsible pet owner and the environmental impacts of pet release. If you cannot make the event, please call Tim Campbell at (608) 265-4164 for more information on pet surrender and alternatives to pet release.
