Thousands of displaced and unwanted exotic animals are in need of homes each year. Before purchasing an animal from a pet store or breeder, please check out your local rescues and humane societies! Here are a few to consider in the Upstate New York area:
SPCA Serving Erie County: Adoptable “others” at the SPCAEC
SPCA Of Niagara: Adoptable “others” at the SPCA Niag.
Lollypop farms of Rochester: Adoptable “others” at Lollypop
Petfinder.com is also a great resource for finding an animal in need of love!
