ROCKLIN-

After 8 years, non-profit organization Star Eco Station in Rocklin is closing its doors at the end of February.

“It’s sad. I’ve been here a long time,” organizer Jamie Hudson said Wednesday. “It’s very upsetting.”

The organization has more than 100 exotic pets up for adoption ranging from $30-$250 in price. They will hold an open auction on Feb. 8, when the  animals will be half off.

The non-profit takes in unwanted exotic pets and provides learning experiences for children including field trips and after school programs.

Staff identified fewer visitors, the economy and higher rent as factors behind the decision to close.

The last day, officially, is Feb. 28. For more information on how to adopt, click here.
