Tortoises and box turtles can outlive their keeper’s ability to care for them.  Central Texas Tortoise Rescue’s mission is to adequately house, care for, rescue and rehabilitate land turtles who need a helping hand, and to place them into loving forever homes.

Until the TPapocolypse blows over, we are only accepting appointments for adoptions. We will not be accepting any appointments for surrenders or for tours at this time, but please check back soon as we anticipate opening those up as soon as it is responsible to do so.

Adopters must meet enclosure requirements in order to qualify. Our credo is that we will never place an animal into a reduced situation, so adopters have to provide better circumstances for the animal than we provide here in order for us to approve the adoption. 

If you follow the enclosure requirements on the adoption page you’ll be fine, but if you’d be more comfortable seeing our setup first (and if the world is normal again), schedule a tour. We’d love to meet you!
