If you have an aquatic turtle which you can no longer care for then we can help. In addition to maintaining our own dedicated turtle pond habitat, we also find new forever homes for our rescued turtles through adoption. Many people purchase baby red ear sliders and other aquatic turtles not realizing at the time how messy they are and how difficult they are to maintain when kept in an indoor aquarium. Large turtles really do best when kept in an outdoor pond.

Southern California Koi Rescue no longer provides onsite turtle rescues. If you wish to drop-off your turtle(s) to us in Highland, CA please submit a completed Turtle Rescue Request below. All turtle drop-offs are by appointment only.
