We recognize that this decision can’t have been easy. It is never easy giving up a family pet, and tortoises are no exception. We deeply sympathize with the circumstances that led you to this decision, and we are committed to providing the best possible care that we can for your animal until we can find a perfect forever home. Our goal with re-homing (adopting) is that we want any potential adopter has to be able to provide even better conditions than we can ourselves provide, ensuring your animal an outdoor environment in which it can thrive and live a long and happy life.

Please note that our ability to accept surrenders is limited to the available dates and times in our calendar. Once you enter the surrender form using the green button above, you will immediately receive an e-mail with a link to our calendar so that you can schedule the drop off. If you don’t see the e-mail right away, check your spam/junk folder. We limit the number of surrenders that we will accept in any given 24-hour period, so if dates are greyed out it is because we have reached the maximum number of appointments that we can accommodate for that day. The calendar link is a live link that will update daily to show you our availability over a 30-day period. If nothing works for you, check back in a few days, as more dates will have opened up.
