Aquatic Take-Back Day

  • Humane Indiana Wildlife Center 570 North 450 East Valparaiso, IN, 46383 United States (map)

Ready to flush your fish or release your turtle back into the wild? STOP! Releasing aquarium and water garden pets down a drain or into the wild can hurt them and the environment. If you can’t keep your aquatic pet, the Aquarium Fish Sanctuary with support from Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant & Illinois Natural History Survey and the Prairie Research Institute with funding from the Great lakes Restoration Initiative invite you to bring them to our aquatic pet take-back event at the Humane Indiana Wildlife Center in Valparaiso. Fish, aquatic reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates and plants will be accepted. Space is limited! 

Wonder if we have space for your pet? Please email:

*Note: There will be no penalties for turning in regulated species.
