Nuisance Wildlife & Unwanted Pets
If you change your mind about a recent purchase, check with your pet store. Some locally-owned stores will allow you to return or exchange your animal for one more suitable to you.
Consider surrenduring your animal to a network of adopters during a Nonnative Pet Amnesty Day presented by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC). Details of upcoming Nonative Pet Amnesty Days can be found by clicking here.
Consider taking your pet to your local humane animal shelter.
If you are a resident of Miami-Dade County, you can contact the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department to request the removal of an unwanted pet reptile or the removal of a nuisance snake at 786-331-4454.
