Rescue Me ID: 18-01-08-00137Red Eared Slider (male)

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Young Adult

    Georgie is male Red Eared Slider turtle according to the previous owner he should be about a year and a half to two years old. He is extremely skittish with new people but adjusts very quickly. I am unfortunately not able to take care of him anymore and would like to see him go to a home that can take better care of him than I have been able to provide.

Rescue Me ID: 18-01-05-00048freshwater turtles

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Young Adult

    We have a yellow belly slider (male) and an eastern painted turtle (believe its female). We inherited the slider from family who couldn't keep it any longer and rescued the painted from someone who wasn't caring for it properly. Now they are getting much to large for the tank they are in (40 gallon) and we are looking to move and not sure if they could go with us. We are trying to find a home for them just in case. They will come with their current home which includes heater, filter, heat lamp, uvb lamp, dock,lava rocks, and log. adoption/rehome fee will be required to make sure they go to a great home. email or text only

Rescue Me ID: 17-12-29-00469Red eared slider

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Young Adult

    My mom decided to purchase a tiny turtle at her local shopping plaza for my children. When she brought him (or her) home I did research and we dis our best to give him a good life... but he's getting too large and too expensive (I am a single mom of three and disabled). I'm worried he isn't getting what he needs (mainly space) and he seems sad. I don't want to give him up but if someone else has the means to give him a good life then that's where he needs to be. If you know of anyone (sanctuaries/ good people) that can take him please let me know! He's approximatly 5 years old and approx 7/9' long 5/6' width

PIease Read Before Adopting Reptiles & More in Massachusetts
    Reptiles & More can make good pets in Massachusetts 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.

    The word Reptile comes from the Latin Repere, which means to creep. In the Florida Everglades, there are over 20,000 non-native reptiles such as Burmese Pythons due to people releasing reptile pets into the wild. The breeding or keeping of reptiles is called Herpetoculture.
