Adoption application is available at the following web address: https://form.jotform.com/201966870328160
We will not consider adopters who do not submit an adoption application.We WILL adopt out of state to qualified adopters. Adoptive family pays for overnight specialty shipping costs (weather and temperature conditions must be conducive to shipping). Absolutely no turtles will be adopted, local or otherwise, between November 15 and January 15, regardless of temperature.

We do not charge an adoption fee, however, any donation over the cost of shipping is very much appreciated. We are an all-volunteer organization, so all donations go directly to the care of our foster turtles/tortoises.

Please be familiar with your state and local laws. We will not willingly or knowingly adopt any turtle where it is prohibited to do so by law. In Mississippi, you MUST possess a "valid Resident Sportsman's License, a Resident All Game Hunting and Freshwater Fishing License, a Small Game Hunting and Freshwater Fishing License, or a Non-Resident All Game Hunting License" to possess native turtles. Further, "no person shall possess more than a total of 20 nongame reptiles" and of that 20 "no more than four (4) can be of the same species or subspecies." Mississippi Code of 1972, Section 49-5-107.
