Turtle Rescue of Long Island is a 501(c)3 non-profit rescue that became incorporated in 2004. We do our best to place all the turtles and tortoises which can no longer be kept for whatever reason that are brought to us. Many people buy a turtle or tortoise and know very little about their care and don’t realize how large or how long turtles and tortoises can live with proper care. Others just find they can no longer care for their turtle or tortoise and just want to find it a good home. Whichever the case, we hope to help find good homes for those that need them.
