Turtles are a long-term commitment, and many, especially red-eared sliders, are surrendered or abandoned by those unable to care for them. So many are surrendered that most shelters and rescues are full. Please consider adoption before you shop.
Dancing Turtle rescues, fosters, and rehomes red-eared sliders and other pet turtle species within New York’s Adirondack Park. We offer NO FEE ADOPTION and housing and feeding guidance.
Please see our adoptable turtles below.
Red-eared sliders are good-natured and enjoy human attention. If their care requirements are met, they tend to be healthy and long-lived. Even if you adopt an adult, you will enjoy many years of turtle antics and companionship.
To begin the adoption process, please download and read the care sheet and complete the adoption application.
