Mission Statement

Uniting A Politically Proactive Exotic Animal League's Mission is to protect the right of responsible exotic and alternative animal ownership by lobbying to prevent unfair regulation, educating owners and potential owners about proper husbandry practices in order to discourage the casual acquisition of animals, and furthering animal welfare through the responsible placement of animals in need.

Uniting A Politically Proactive Exotic Animal League is an organization created to further the social welfare of wild and other “termed” exotic pets in captivity by working to maintain the rights of responsible ownership of companion animals by individuals who choose to share their life with an alternative pet.

UAPPEAL supports the ownership of "Wild" or alternative companion animals by those who understand their multi-faceted needs, are educated in their husbandry, and provide proper enrichment and enclosures that support physical and mental health, while providing for public safety.

If you are interested in obtaining an non-traditional pet, consider joining UAPPEAL, where you can meet other responsible owners, learn sound husbandry practices and educate yourself BEFORE obtaining the animal. Many of our members have owned, or better said have been owned, by their animals for over 20 years. UAPPEAL also works with select zoological parks and other animal organizations to offer a three-day hands on husbandry course encompassing most animals found in zoos.
