i AM LOOKING FOR A NEW HOME FOR MY 3 RES
I TOOK IN THE FIRST ONE WHEN HE WAS JUST A BABY 13 YRS AGO WHEN MY BROTHER PASSED AWAY. I JUST COULD'NT BEAR IT BEING HOMELESS.
THE OTHER TWO WAS GIVEN TO ME ALSO WHEN THEY WERE BABIES 10 YRS AGO
I HAD NO PROBLEM CARING FOR THEM, BUT NOW I AM SICK, AND NOT ABLE TO CARE FOR THEM
I TRIED FINDING A PLACE FOR THEM BUT NO ONE WANTS THE RESPONSIBILITY TO CARE FOR THEM
I REALLY NEED THEM TO GO TO A PLACE THAT WILL TREAT THEM RIGHT
i LIVE IN NYC AND ANY INFORMATION WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED

Hello Liz,
Sorry, it's been a while since you've posted that. Have you tried looking for animal sanctuary the closest to you?
Even if in another state, I know there are a couple of places where they will be able to take care of your turtles. I would look for rescue centers as well. Avoid making ads on sites like Facebook or Craigslist, you might give your turtle to someone who won't take care of them properly. :/

Hi
I have looked into animal sanctuaries, rescue centers but they will not take in anymore red ear sliders
I will continue searching and hope to receive good news
Thank you for replying

Check with education institutions who might want to take one in, or maybe you can post an adoption notice with local vets. Letting a reptile society know of your situation might also help. Good luck.

Ah yes, reptile society! That's a good idea. If you really can't find any, you can always go to reptile fan group on FB, preferably private ones so you are 100% sure the person you will donate them to will take care of them nicely.

Good point, I often underestimate the size of FB groups. Being a guide (offering help and equipment) to new keepers is also a huge benefit in rehoming, its just tough when they are insistent on getting a hatchling.
