Rio Grande Turtle & Tortoise Club


We are committed to our quest to RESCUE and rehabilitate turtles in our community, FOSTER turtles until they are ready for ADOPTION, and care for our wonderful shelled friends.

Anyone who has ever been fascinated by observing a turtle or tortoise and aspires to own one should first and foremost research the specific species requirements. We have the info you need!

The RGTTC has box turtles, aquatic turtles and tortoises available for adoption. Please contact us before you go to a pet store or Craigslist! Fostering options are available too.

Your donations are appreciated!
