WE ARE AVAILABLE
We are frequently asked if we have tortoises or box turtles available for adoption. Deciding to place our tortoises with other families is never an easy decision for us. Many of these animals come to us with health issues, deformities, and often from very neglectful situations. We struggle with making sure we never put these amazing animals in those situations again. We also recognize that we cannot keep each animal that comes into our care, especially those that are healthy enough to be adopted. We will post updated candidates on this page with some details about each one. If you are interested in applying for ownership please fill out an application here
We will do our best to place the right tortoise or box turtle with the right family so both you and the tortoise (or turtle) are happy.

Henry is a large, territorial male Sulcatta that weighs between 60-70 pounds. He has a feisty personality and doesn't take kindly to visitors in his enclosure. He needs an experienced keeper with a lot of room to roam. No other Sulcattas can be kept with him for safety reasons. If you are interested in applying please fill out an adoption form.
Keep in mind Sulcatta tortoises are the 3rd largest tortoises in the world and weights over 120 pounds are common. They may also live more than 75 years. This should be considered before applying.
Noldberg is a sweet, shy Russian tortoise. His age is unknown, and this is due to the fact that many Russians are wild caught and imported from their homeland. These animals are often stressed and don't do well in petshop settings. His owner could not get him to eat for many months, so he ended up with us. He is now eating well and ready to go to a forever home. If you are interested in adopting Noldberg please fill out an application form.
