    In September, an asylum for exotic pets will be opened in Shelter for Homeless Animals in Bytom, Silesian Voivodeship. The Silesian facility will take care of smuggled birds, reptiles, and amphibians abandoned by their owners who were overwhelmed by the demanding pet care or escaped and lost pets. Director of the shelter, Anna Kornas: “The listed species for which we have obtained a permit include, among others, parrots, pythons, boas, turtles, iguanas, geckos, chameleons, and various species of arboreal animals”.

    Numerous terrariums, aquariums and aviaries for birds have been installed in the building in the shelter for Homeless Animals in Bytom. They are well separated from the surrounding dogs and cats. In addition, the rooms in which the animals will be located are protected against possible escapes.

    Birds: turquoise-fronted amazon, yellow-naped amazon, golden-headed, white-fronted amazon, green-cheeked parakeet, white-faced rosella, eastern rosella, crimson rosella, Lord Derby’s parakeet, red-rumped parrot, and more.
