I found a turtle or tortoise. What do I do?

If you have found a turtle or tortoise and you're not sure if it is a wild animal or a pet, we will be happy to identify the animal with photos. Feel free to email or text message us.

For wild, native species:

If you are in our area (San Antonio and surrounding areas) we recommend: Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation at: 

(210) 257-8823 or (830) 336-2725


While we do our best to help identify found chelonians, we do not take in native wildlife. On occasion a found animal is an exotic species (pet) and we can assist in taking them in if we have space.
