Operating since 2015, Central Texas Tortoise Rescue’s mission is to house, care for, rescue, and rehabilitate captive (pet) tortoises and box turtles who need a helping hand, and to place them into loving forever homes. We operate out of our homes by appointment only.

Our Story

It all started with a supposedly ageless Russian Tortoise named Trogdor, a newly homeless Box Turtle named Stuart, and an abandoned Sulcata named Thor.


If you have found a native tortoise or turtle in need of rehabilitation, DO NOT bring it to CTTR.

CTTR rescues domestic animals and cannot rehabilitate wildlife. Instead, please consider the wildlife rescues we recommend below.
