Children are fascinated with small pets. The parents hesitate to buy them a new baby turtle. The parents give in and buy their children this new pet. Hoping that their children will learn responsibility. Everything goes well for a couple of weeks.
But you notice things are changing. The children are ‘slacking off’ in their responsibilities. You find yourself doing all the chores. Cleaning the tank, feeding, etc. This goes on for awhile but now you are tired of taking care of this little pet. You debate on what to do…
This is a very common theme among a lot of pet owners. Not just of turtles, but of all pets. It’s not as easy to give away a turtle as it is a dog or cat. Luckily there is the Internet. A whole world of information at your fingertips.
Below are some links to sites that offer turtle adoptions. Read them carefully as not all sites accept red ear sliders. They have their own terms and conditions. I am not recommending any site in particular.
I have just gathered up sites that offer turtle adoption. Do the research and ask them of any questions you may have. Ask them for references if you feel you need to.
Lastly, feel free to post in the comments if you are looking to adopt a turtle or to give one up.
