We have lots of box turtles! Can you give one a forever home?

If you are interested in adopting a 3-toed or an ornate box turtle, please fill out an adoption application and submit via e-mail, with photos of your enclosure. Box turtles are escape artists, so if you build something with a wall you will need to either use a hinged wire mesh cover or create an overhang so they cannot climb out. Box turtles, like all turtles and tortoises, should be kept outdoors where they can get plenty of access to sunlight, but also with enough shelters that they can get out of the sun whenever they want. They require a constant supply of water, but they are not aquatic species, so their enclosure will need to be mostly land with a little pond for soaking in, which they will do often. Do your homework, you’ll be required to illustrate through your answers to the adoption application that you know how to care for these before we can adopt to you. There is a suggested donation of $75 for each box turtle that you adopt, but there are lots to choose from!

Lots of box turtles at CTTR.
