We do NOT charge surrender fees, and 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.
