Rescued – Sugar Glider, Russian Hamster and Red-eared Slider

We were asked by an-expat who lived in Bangkok to provide a safe refuge to his exotic pets after he had to return home for a family emergency. WFFT does not usually focus on rehoming non-native exotic pets but in this instance the owner could not find a suitable home so we stepped in to help. The ownership of exotic pets in Thailand is very common; we see a surprisingly high number of exotic pets, ranging from large animals such a cassowaries to very small animals like marmosets. New Wildlife Protection Laws will include certain clauses to protect non-native species and regulate the ownership of such animals, we expect the number of unwanted exotic pets to increase in the near future.
