We do NOT charge surrender fees, and recognize that this decision can’t have been easy.

This is a no-judgement zone. 

Meet Crush! Crush is a sulcata (African spur thigh) tortoise who just came to CTTR on June 1st.

If you have a chelonian that you can no longer care for, simply fill out the form below and we will be in touch with you as soon as possible. Don’t worry if you don’t have all of the information, but please fill in everything you can. We promise to provide your animal with the best care that we possibly can until we place it with a qualified forever family. By filling out the form, you are agreeing that you can deliver the animal to our facility in San Marcos, Texas.

All surrender application approvals are on hold while the world is crazy, but you are still invited to submit your application. As soon as we are accepting visitors for surrenders again, we’ll e-mail you. Once we approve your application, we’ll be in touch with a link to our calendar of availability. You can choose a date and time that work for you, and you will be presented with our address at that time. We cannot accept water turtles at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience.
