  • Exotic Pet Amnesty Day with FWC

    Feb 29th, 2020
    10:00am - 2:00pm
    Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens (Parking Lot)

    Exotic Pet Amnesty Days are events held periodically around the state to provide the opportunity for people to surrender their exotic pets free of charge with no penalties. It's an effort to reduce the number of nonnative species being released into the wild by pet owners who can no longer care for their pets or no longer wish to keep them.

    FWC's Winter Exotic Pet Amnesty Day is being held in the Naples Zoo parking lot on Saturday, February 29 from 10 am - 2 pm. 

    Another goal of the program is to foster responsible pet ownership though outreach and education. Learn more here
