Wellington's Neighborhood Watch team, in partnership with Florida Fish and Wildlife, invite residents to an Exotic Pet Amnesty Seminar on Tuesday, November 2nd at 5:00 PM. This educational seminar is FREE to attend and will take place via the Zoom platform. REGISTER NOW to attend!

The Exotic Pet Amnesty Program is a one-of-a-kind conservation effort to reduce the number of non-native pets released into the wild. Owners of non-native pet species face no legal penalties (regardless of the regulatory status of their pet) and do not pay any fees to surrender a pet through the program. Owners may surrender non-native pets for any reason at any time. The FWC facilitates the adoption process and makes every effort to place the non-native pet with an approved adopter. The presentation covers the program's purpose, history, and operations. 

The Village’s Neighborhood Watch Program provides members with tools that support the safety of the community and opens communication with the Village of Wellington and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. Neighborhood Watch also creates a sense of community, encourages involvement and observation, and advocates improved home security and personal safety.
