  • | 10:00am - 3:00pm | Special Interest, pets, surrender, exotic, aquatic, nature
    - Do you have a pet that you are no longer able to care for? If so, bring your pet to the Habitattitude Surrender Event on Oct. 1 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. at 1000 Islands Environmental Center in Kaukauna. Volunteers will be accepting fish, snakes, reptiles, and aquarium plants--no questions asked.

    The Habitattitude Rehoming Network is a new area resource that aims to provide responsible alternatives to release for exotic pet owners who are no longer able to care for their pets. The network, along with the Green Bay Aquarium Society (GBAS), and Steve Keller the Snake Man are hosting the October event.

    In addition to the surrender event, GBAS is hosting a fish auction on Oct. 2 at the Starlite Club, W2091 County Highway JJ, Kaukauna. Any freshwater or saltwater fish surrendered will be included in the auction.

    In some areas, there are no rehoming options for animals such as fish, snakes. and turtles. Given limited resources, pet owners unable to care for their pet may think that releasing the animal is the right thing to do. However, many aquarium species are exotic and if they become established in the environment, can wreak serious havoc. The national Habitattitude campaign lists several alternatives to pet release with rehoming being one of the best options. To learn more, visit click for details

    Please note: Volunteers will only be accepting fish, snakes, reptiles, and aquatic plants at the event. Cats and dogs should be taken directly to the Fox Valley Humane Society in Appleton.
