At mynewturtle, we take in animals that have been abused or neglected, rehabilitate them, and then either provide them with a permanent home with us, or find them one.  Some of the animals below are up for adoption (top part of the page), others have already found homes (bottom part of the page).  We are very picky as to whom we will adopt animals to, but if you are interested, please contact us and we will help you find the best pet for you!

 

An asterisk (*) denotes animals that are up for adoption.  There is a small adoption fee required to adopt an animal plus the cost of any shipping required.  Contact us for more information.

The animals below have found forever homes - either with us at mynewturtle, or with new families.  Thank you to those who have opened their homes to these adorable animals!

This is a russian tortoise named Rusty.  He almost died several years back after eating a poisonous mushroom.  We kept him hydrated and hand fed him for months until he was finally able to eat and drink on his own.   

He is blind and has permanent brain damage.  He now has a home that provides a safe environment where he can take all the time he needs to eat his food each day.   He is not housed with other reptiles and gets plenty of TLC!

Thank you to Stephanie in SC for providing Rusty with a forever home!

This is an adult, male iguana named Iggy.  His previous owner kept him indoors and thought he was very affectionate.  When he stopped eating, the vet told her that Iggy had developed an enormous bladder stone.  

Once it was removed, Iggy's true, aggressive personality came out and he was given up.  Iggy now lives outside and is thriving as his natural, ornery self.

Thank you to Steve for providing him with a forever home!

This is a female, aberrant fat tail gecko (top in the picture).  She has ribs that are slightly misshapen, making her body appear somewhat flat.  She eats well, is active, and docile with people.  She will make a great pet. 

Thank you to Brittaney in AZ for providing her with a forever home!

This is a female, albino fat tail gecko.  Several years ago, she hatched out of the egg with a stunted tail and a misaligned jaw.  She eats well on crickets, but has stunted growth.  She will make a wonderful pet.    

Thank you to Brittaney in AZ for providing her with a forever home!

This is a female, aberrant fat tail gecko (bottom in the picture).  Her deformities are the same as the gecko above, but more exaggerated. She has slightly misshapen ribs that make her body appear somewhat flat.  Due to this, it takes her longer to swallow crickets.  She is active, eating, and docile.  She will make an excellent pet.  Watch her walk in the video below. 


Thank you to Brittaney in AZ for providing her with a forever home!

This is a male 3-toed box turtle that was kept indoors with no heat, food or water.  He had a severely overgrown beak.  His nails curled from overgrowth and his skin was extremely dry and thin.
  

He is now thriving outdoors with his beak and nails trimmed.  His skin has thickened and is no longer dry.  He is very friendly and loves his worms. 

Thank you to Lynda in CA for providing him with his forever home!

This is a female ornate box turtle that was kept indoors with no heat, food or water.  She was dehydrated and extremely skinny.  Her beak was overgrown, and her nails and skin were thin and dry.

When first placed on solid ground her feet developed abscesses from the weight of her body on skin and muscles that had not felt that in years.  She is now recovering and has become very friendly.

Thank you to Freda in AZ for providing her with her forever home!

This is a female 3-toed box turtle that was kept indoors with no heat, food or water.  Her beak and nails were severely overgrown.  Her skin was very dry and thin and her muscles weak.  When she was first placed on solid ground, she had difficulty walking and her nails actually bled.


She also developed eye and ear infections.  With lots of TLC, this turtle recovered nicely.  She is now hydrated, her skin is thickening and she has strengthened her muscles enough to walk normally.  She has also associated people with big, juicy earthworms, and she is now very friendly.

Thank you to Sarah in NY for providing her with a forever home!

This is a water dragon that was kept in a very small cage without heat, food or water, in an attempt to keep her small. 
She is healthier now, but is still shy and displays abnormal behavior due to her inadequate conditions during her development. 
Lilly's forever home is at mynewturtle.
