U.S. Rescue Groups - Need to find a new home?

American Tortoise Rescue only rehomes through Facebook due to our big commitment to education and making World Turtle Day happen on May 23rd every year.  If you are interested in adopting or need to place a turtle or tortoise please email info@tortoise.com or the following sites or individuals for help.  If you want to place a tortoise through Facebook, email info@tortoise.com with the type of tortoise, age, a good photo and your location.  We will post it to our 6,000 followers and try to connect you to a good new forever home.
