We cannot accept applications for water turtles at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience.

We do NOT charge surrender fees.

If you have an animal that you would like to place at the rescue, simply fill out the form at the link 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.  Once we approve your application, we’ll be in touch with a link to our calendar of availability. Please communicate with me early on if you know you cannot keep your appointment. You can choose a date and time that work for you, and you will be presented with our address at that time.  Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to pick any animals up, so please be sure you have a way to get your animal to our facility in San Marcos, Texas. 



We no longer allow people into our home to use the restroom (not even senior citizens or children…I’m sorry). There are gas stations within five to ten minutes either direction from our location, so please plan accordingly. Thank you for respecting our family’s privacy.
