Its been a little wetter this year, but we've had unseasonable warmer weather and this has our animals a little confused. Some have stayed asleep, but many have ventured out during these warmer days. We are starting to get animals in and while we isolate and make sure they re healthy, we will be looking for future homes for them. If you are interested, please visit our adoptions page and fill out our adoption form so we can get the process in motion. Keep in mind we don't get in the exotics, lots of Desert tortoises, red-eared sliders, and Sulcatas (do your research, Sulcatas get very large). After those three we sometimes get box turtles and Russian tortoises in. Sometimes they are the prettiest animals, sometimes they haven't had the best environment or care, but they are healthy and will live a long life if properly taken care of.
The 2015 Adoption Season has closed. To find out when adoptions re-open in 2016, follow our Facebook page or sign-up for newsletter.
