Animal Cruelty - Animal Abuse star
I have an assignment for you. It should be quite interesting. April is Animal Cruelty Prevention Month. What would it FEEL like to be treated with this intentional cruelty? Is there a such thing as unintentional cruelty? Animal abuse is just plain wrong!

Daryn Kagan star[offsite link]
Daryn Kagan website will make your day. Inspirational stories about all kinds of animals. It doesnít necessarily have anything to do with my Exotic Pets site however, if you think about it for a moment, it has everything to do with my Exotic Pets site.

Discrimination star
I am socially unacceptable. It is because I am an exotic pet owner. I have a skunk, ferret, and a raccoon, sharing my home, as well as a wide variety of other exotic pets. I am responsible for these pets. Some people should never have pets, some people should never give birth to a child.

Exotic Pet Blunders star
Perhaps some lessons can be painful, especially when it comes to making mistakes that causes an illness or even the death of an exotic pet. Exotic pets were a big part of my life when I was a young child. Some of these pets included a red eared slider turtle, an alligator, and a parakeet.

Exotic Pet Laws - Be Proactive! star
Extinction does mean gone forever! Our ecosystem is unraveling where will it end? Exotic pet captive breeding programs may be the only answer to the extinction of many species of animals. We must also protect the extinction of all species of life. Only five percent of known plant species have bee

Exotic Pets Ė Be Realistic star
Exotic pets have very different needs than normal common pets. There are a wide variety of different requirements among various species of exotic pets. Please go into pet ownership being realistic about these needs. Having a pet is a commitment that will last the petís lifetime.

Exotic Pets and Children star
Exotic pets, for that matter any pet, I donít care if it is a dog, cat, ferret, all pets, they should always be supervised especially when around children. If an exotic pet injures a child it is the caregivers fault. If a child injures a pet, again, it is the caregivers fault.

Exotic Pets and Wild Animals star
For many years I worked with exotic pets and parrots. I love animals all animals. I made a decision to move across the US from California to Northern Minnesota because my children had learning disabilities. Learn the difference between wildlife and exotic pets. Wildlife is not an exotic pet.

Exotic Pets and Your Significant Other star
Introducing a menagerie of exotic pets to a new significant other, in my case my new husband. This article is dedicated to the one I love my husband George Geiger. Pioneering new relationships can be interesting, and a learning experience, to say the least. Several funny animal pictures and videos.

Exotic Pets Found in Dumpsters Still in Cages star
A hedgehog found in a dumpster; cage and all. A rabbit tied to a tree, the skin had grown over its collar. How many thousands of innocents must suffer? Animals left starving, no food, no water, stuck in their cages; abandoned when their people moved out. You talk the talk, will you walk the walk?

Eyes of an Angel star
I had put forth a question and perhaps got an answer I didnít want to hear. Do we give up our exotic pets to eliminate the exotic pet trade? As I look at my pets and look into their eyes I know I canít stop. They give me something I canít get anywhere else.

Fatal Attraction - Rebuttal star
The odds of death or serious injury by exotic pet are so minuscule, though this certainly is not how it is portrayed by the media and assuredly not Animal Planet and their new documentary Fatal Attraction. These are single, isolated incidents. How did I reach this conclusion; through data and fact.

Ferret Helps Disabled Man star
Ferret is a Service Animal to a Man with Disability, and according to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Bella, the ferret may well be a service animal. Just as monkeys help give independence and hope to those who had little hope before.

How Much Is That Doggie in the Window star
Perhaps the doggie should stay in the window if you are buying this animal on impulse. Have you done your homework? How big is the animal going to get? Can you meet its social needs? Can you afford all the equipment, food, and medical care? Don't give exotic pet owners an undeserved bad name.

Interview with Jean Lengwin star
Jean Lengwin is the author of a very special book which is a collection of short stories of how animals shaped her life.

A tribute to Jane Bone Skunk Lady. Jane Bone and her years of experience with the domestic skunk brought a wealth of knowledge and awareness to the world. This article is archived under One Person Can Make a Difference for a very good reason.

Though I lost my son in Minnesota experiencing this beautiful state through a childís eyes; experiencing many of the stateís 10,000 animals up close and personal. My work with wildlife rehabilitation was fulfilling; though at times it can be tough on the heart strings.I also got to meet the ferret!

New Pets star
Before picking out new pets read the article. Buy animals is a very important decision. There is a lot to consider before buying new animals. Each individual pet has their own needs.

PETA - Animal Rights star
Pet owners that donate to PETA actually believe their money is going to saving pets while in fact it goes to killing pets. These documents clearly showed that PETA killed 90% of the dogs, cats, and other companion pets (exotic pets) during a five year period. What is animal rights?

PETA KILLS 95% of Adoptable Animals in 2011 star
Where did the money go? The money that people donated to PETA. in good faith, HARD eared money. To euthanize 95% of Adoptable Animals during the year 2011(and many previous years). The majority of these animals were held less than 24 hours before being killed. These are facts people, read to believe

Responsibility Exotic Pet Ownership star
My priorities of what makes a responsible exotic pet owner have changed due to recent events. Think long and hard - what would be best for our exotic pets. Sometimes we must put our feelings aside. We canít be selfish.

Tribute to My Son star
This is a story I wrote shortly after my fifteen-year old son has passed away. He had disabilities and I hope this story can help others like him. At least show the miracles of unconditional love. It is the anniversary of his death and this is something I needed to do. Off subject warning :)

TV Networks and Exotics - A New Problem? star
Over the last several years, many nature and animal oriented TV networks have turned to far more sensational programming to attract audiences. How and why has this become a problem for the exotics community? Are Animal Television Networks Tumbling into the Toilet?

Understanding Animals star
The many shades of gray will eternally be my rainbow. Animal, swine all offensive derogatory terms; perception is a funny thing. Perhaps we need to understand animals better to understand our pets or other people's pets. Or, perhaps why some people have exotic pets.

You are Utterly Alone - Animal Cruelty star
April is Animal Cruelty Prevention Month
