We would love to give every single turtle and tortoise a forever home.
Realistically we can't.
We don't want to be turtle hoarders.
So you are thinking of adding a turtle or tortoise to your family. Adoption is such a loving and caring option.
We here at Tortoise Acres are here through out the life of your shelled friend to answer questions and help in any way we can. If at any time you can't keep your turtle or tortoise it must be returned to Tortoise Acres.
A two page adoption application is required along with instructions on feeding, inside & outside enclosure pictures, heat & lights are required to adopt a turtle or tortoise. You must be 18yrs.+
You must show us pictures of your enclosures.
Fill out our contact form and let us know what species of turtle or tortoise you are looking for.
