Animal rescue programs host exotic pet surrender event in La Crosse

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — Spot animal rescue applications were at Myrick Park now for an exotic pet surrender celebration.

Those unable to treatment for their unique animals were able to drop them off instead of releasing them into the wild.

John Moyles, the director of J&R Aquatic Animal Rescue, states this is the most secure possibility for all people associated.

“If people really don’t know what to do with their exotic pets, often they’ll just permit them go considering that they’ll have a greater existence. But in Wisconsin, most of the time, animals just just cannot endure. They either simply cannot adapt and can not survive, or they adapt and come to be an invasive species,” Moyles reported.

Businesses at the event accepted fish, invertebrates, reptiles, birds, compact mammals and plants– no queries requested.

They also made available a presentation on invasiive species, and had rescued animal ambassadors on site for site visitors to meet up with.

Every single of the animals introduced to the surrender occasion will sooner or later be adoptable.
