Box Turtle Adoption Weekend!
January 25 @ 8:00 am - January 26 @ 5:00 pm$50
Please read **ENTIRE POST** if you want to adopt.
Yesterday we received 30 box turtles from the Wildlife Center of Virginia. A few of these animals tested positive for mycoplasma, so they were ALL treated and each animal now has a clean bill of health.
These animals have come in too late in the year to hibernate this year, so you can keep then inside this winter only. After that they MUST live outside full time, it’s the right thing to do for the animal.
We are open for adoptions this weekend, but please read every single bullet point once you click the link – I really don’t want to have to send you away without an animal after you drive all the way here if you fail to bring appropriate habitat photos with authentication, but I will. Your enclosure does not have to be completed yet, but you will need to have photos of the area where you will put it, and by mid-March you MUST keep these animals outdoors full time. I have people that can come build the enclosure for you, I’ll post that information tomorrow.
The adoption fee for these guys is $50 for the first animal and $25 for each additional. This is lower than our usual $75 adoption fee because it’s important to get these guys into great homes quickly.
