Is your pet unconventional?
Do people put you down because your pet isn't a socially acceptable cat, dog or goldfish?
Do you prefer the companionship of a domestic ferret, sugar glider, hedgehog, gerbil, snake, lizard, prairie dog, domestic skunk, degu, wallaby, emu, parrot, millipede, llama, exotic cat, monkey or ? Do you have trouble finding information on how to properly keep your alternative pets? Is it hard to find veterinarians, shelters, rescue groups or even food and pet supplies for your exotic pets?

Do you think it is fair for various exotic pet species to be prohibited in various states or cities? Discrimination based on your choice of a pet is still discrimination.
Even though many exotic pet species have been bred in captivity for a long time now, the laws still treat them like second class pets in some areas. They often blow isolated incidents out of proportion or treat those with exotic pets like criminals. They accuse pet owners of causing the decline of species, when in fact many endangered species are bred by private individuals and are declining due to habitat destruction. Some species have no chance other then captive breeding.
Vets are hard to locate at times and rescue groups are even scarcer. Zoos often will not take unwanted exotic pets nor help the owners learn how to care for them. Too many shelters who end up with an animal that is not a domestic dog or cat resort to euthanasia, because they are unwilling to allow a dedicated or qualified private individual adopt an animal they believe only a zoo is qualified to keep. Some wildlife rehab groups also would rather put the exotic pet or non-releasable animal to sleep rather then place it in a new home.
Are you tired of extremists making the word 'pet' a dirty word or animal rights groups who would rather see animals dead then kept in loving homes?

Its time for a change and education is the key Lets help people understand and love our misunderstood alternative pets.

Due to being far too busy for my own health, I may not be able to answer all email. I do not act as a broker/agent to find animals for people for free. All requests to me for animals I do not personaly breed myself will be ignored.

Thank you to R-Zu-2-U for links to their well researched exotic animal care pages! A thanks to all other exotic animal care sites as well!

Please: If you wish to keep an exotic animal as a pet, DO YOUR HOMEWORK FIRST! Learn all about its care, proper diet, habits, permits required, etc. BEFORE you get any pet(s). Don't make your pet(s) suffer from simple ignorance. Exotic pets are often not for anyone, but that goes for non-exotic pets as well. Due to the fact that many exotics bond closely to their first owners and are difficult to place in new homes, an exotic pet is a responsibility that lasts the life of the animal. Be prepared to care for that animal for many years and make plans for their continued care if anything should happen to you. There are many web sites and books out there to help you learn if there are no local zoos or breeders who can help you. There are dozens of mailing lists you can join to meet other pet owners and learn from them. Read everything you can on the species and use common sense.

Be a responsible pet owner!

We as an organization cannot play politics and exclude any one part of the whole. Everyone in this industry MUST stand together, despite our differences or we will fall separately. Our rights to even keep exotics, wither private owner or zoo, may be eliminated through the legislation pushed by extremist groups.
