           VI.  New Business
A.   FCW Pet Amnesty Day: See information below from Dr. Kapustin:
FWC (Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission) Exotic Pet Amnesty Day to be held at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens on November 3. They each, respectively, ask for individuals to consider surrendering exotic pets which clients may no longer wish to have or maybe should be encouraged to find more suitable homes and solicit individuals interested in adopting any of the surrendered pets. This is an effort to prevent the release of non-native species. Flyers are available on the JVMS Website.  Feel free to post them at your practices and to encourage certain clients to consider surrendering or adopting an exotic pet. No penalties will be issued to anyone surrendering an illegally held species. The event is also open to just interested individuals who want to attend the event. There will be some exhibitors present with interpretative booths covering information on invasive species and other such concerns.

I am also looking for a few additional veterinarians who could assist with exams on the surrendered exotic pets (birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and mammals of many species are expected). They can bring a veterinary technician with them if they choose. A comfort level with exotics is obviously helpful. The surrender time is from 10AM – 2 PM and I ask that those helping arrive by around 9 AM. Please contact me via e-mail ( if interested. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. My cell is 472-5988 if you’d prefer calling.

Thanks in advance for your help.
