Meet Fred

Fred is an adult male Three Toed Box Turtle. He was picked up by someone for his kids to play with. The finder does not remember where he found the turtle. Since we don't know Fred's point of origin, we cannot release him and he now needs to find a forever home in captivity.

We do not charge an adoption fee and we do not sell any turtles. All potential adopters will be heavily screened. We are willing to ship, on a case-by-case basis - adopter pays all shipping costs. Any donation in addition to shipping fees is greatly appreciated and helps to offset the costs associated with that turtle's care and rehabilitation. If a turtle is to be shipped out of state, the adoption must also first be approved by the MS Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks. Shipping is temperature-sensitive. Depending on where you live, we may not be able to ship to you during summer or winter. Absolutely no turtles will be adopted, local or otherwise, between November 15 and January 15, regardless of temperature.

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.

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.
