A RESCUE FACILITY FOR TORTOISES AND BOX TURTLES
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.

It’s time for Amplify Austin! At the end of 2019 we added four amazing new enclosures, and this year we’ve got to outfit them! One of them will even be divided into 8 smaller enclosure spaces for the little guys. Each new enclosure will need:

  • hiding places

  • grasses/plants/cover/bushes

  • tortoise houses

  • burrows

  • predator protection 

  • enrichment

  • irrigation*** <-this is our biggest/most expensive improvement planned for 2020, and we really need your help to get it going!
