Finding a New Home

Before contacting us to find a home for your animal, please consider contacting Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. They have an Amnesty program that will find a home for the conditional species (red-eared sliders) or aid you in surrendering prohibited exotic species at no charge. They have a list of approved adopters that have filled out paperwork and are approved by the state.
