FISHING AND BOATING

Don't Let it Loose Wyoming

WHAT TO DO

Make sure you know what animals are legal to keep as pets and what plants you can have in your aquarium. Never release a plant or animal into the wild. If your pet gets too much to handle or you need to get rid of your aquarium plants, always remember to C.A.R.E. for them.

WHAT IS C.A.R.E.?

Contact...
the place where you purchased the pet to see if they will take it back.

Act Responsibly...
by never letting animals or plants loose into the wild.

Research...
other places that may be able to provide a new home for your pet. Pet stores, zoos, aquariums, science centers, animal shelters, and humane societies may be able to help.

Euthanize
the animal in a humane way. It may be hard to consider, but this option is far kinder than letting it starve to death in the wild or destroy the homes of native animals. Always freeze unwanted plants and throw them out in the trash.
