ALL Box Turtles that come to live on our ranch, will live out their lives here without the need of sponsorship. We can take any Box Turtle or Tortoise that you have, but we are selective when it comes to aquatic species of Turtle due to their space requirements, our limited pond sizes, and the sheer number of them that come our way, but you’re always welcome to inquire.
For any aquatic species that we are not able to permanently house, we can still take them in, but will most likely adopt them out to one of our friends, connections or adopters who have completed an application and passed our inspections and standards. You will need to donate their current enclosure and their supplies during this process. The enclosure must be of an appropriate size for the turtle species being surrendered, (example: we cannot take in a juvenile or adult Slider that is being housed in a 20 gallon aquarium.)
*Please, never release any Turtle or Tortoise into the wild. They will most likely die, and they can take bacteria and diseases with them that will infect the wild population*
