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.
Please read the care info page on the tortoise you are interested in.
You will fill out a two page adoption application when you get here. We will give you instructions on feeding, enclosures, heat & lights. You must be 18yrs. or have permission from you're parents.
You must show us pictures of your enclosures.
Pay the adoption fee & take your new shelled friend home.

Just a reminder: We have no idea the care these tortoises have gotten before they come to Tortoises Acres. Most of them have some degree of MBD (Metabolic Bone Disease) Calcium & sunlight will make it better but will not cure it.
If you decide to take your tortoise to the vet after bringing him home, at no time is Tortoise Acres responsible for the vet bill or any part of it. We will however take the tortoise back and exchange you with another one as soon as one becomes available. Please if you have questions don't hesitate to ask. We are here to help.
This is a rescue not a pet shop.
Thanks to everyone who adopts a tortoise in need. If at any time you can not keep your tortoise we are happy to take him back and find him another home. Life happens and we understand that.
