DETAILS

Date: Saturday, February 24, 2024

Time: 12:00pm – 3:00pm

WHAT TO EXPECT

Meet animal ambassadors and learn about their stories. Capture memories at the J&R Aquatic Animal Rescue photobooth with rescued pets!

Accepting: Fish, invertebrates, reptiles, pet birds, small mammals, and plants–no questions.

Not Accepting: Domestic pets like dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, pigs, and chickens. If you have domestic animals, inquire with local shelters or rescues for rehoming options.
