Urgent: This animal could be euthanized if not adopted soon.


Rescue Me ID: 17-10-19-00341Red Eared Slider Turtl

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Young Adult


    This turtle has been living in a 10 tank almost it's whole life. My family got it when I was around 8, but I'm older now and can understand how horrible it's conditions are. I've mentioned how it needs more care lots of times now, and eventually they just said 'If you care so much about it then it's your responsibility now.' I can't pay to get a bigger tank or to euthanize it, they want to either let it go or kill it. I just want someone to take it and give it more of a life than it has here, please.

    Very friendly boa named Mojo. He's (I'm not sure male or female, I've always just called him a he.) around 7 years old. Eats live large rats every 2 weeks. Comes with tank, heat lamp, heat pad, and water bowl. He's a great pet, hoping to find him a home where he'll get the time and attention he deserves. No breeders please.

Rescue Me ID: 17-09-22-00341(2) Red Earred Sliders (male)

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Young Adult


    I am in an emergency situation. My son's wife moved out while my son was not home. She left her two red eared sliders behind. My son needs to move out of the apartment by Sunday and he's leaving right away for Texas to help with the disaster. When she bought the tank, they told her it was a 100 gallon tank, Sorry the water looks cloudy, I had just added food and my son told me I put in way too much! Turtles are currently located in Hyde Park (Chicago). Help would be greatly appreciated. Carolynn

PIease Read Before Adopting Reptiles & More in Illinois
    Reptiles & More can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. Reptiles are interesting animals. Many types of reptiles and amphibians are kept as exotic pets. Snakes, turtles, iguanas, and frogs are popular examples. Keeping a reptile as a pet is a tremendous responsibility. Many reptile owners discover that owning a reptile is not as rewarding as they had hoped. Reptiles do not bond with people the way mammals can, and are sometimes neglected for that reason. Also, many people purchase young, small reptiles without being aware of or prepared for their eventual adult size. For example, Burmese Pythons are often bought as pets when they are about two feet long. However, many do not realize that Burmese Pythons are among the largest snakes in the world, with adults averaging 23 feet in length and weighing hundreds of pounds! There is now an established invasive population of Burmese Pythons in Florida due to pet owners releasing the snakes into the wild. Scientists believe these huge snakes will keep spreading out and will one day inhabit one third of the United States! Some owners are not prepared for the long lifespan of a pet reptile. Some species of turtles are known for their extreme longevity. Iguanas can grow to be six feet long and then live for 20 years. Sadly, many captive reptiles suffer from dehydration and kidney problems, poor nutrition, and all other manner of neglect. A person who is truly ready to commit to a reptile pet can alleviate some suffering by adopting an animal rather than purchasing new.
