By sponsoring a tortoise, this allows the tortoise to stay in the sanctuary with us! Some tortoises cost more than others (i.e. vet bills, requiring new pens), but we generally ask for an average $20 per month. You can set it up as a subscription payment where you will get charged automatically each month through your paypal account, and can cancel at any time. We will send donation receipts when requested -OR- after subscriber cancels payments.

To setup a sponsorship, please click the button above, set the donation amount to $20 or more, and make sure to check the box to make this a reoccurring payment before submitting.

Email bigandsmalltortoise@gmail.com to confirm which tortoise you are sponsoring and let us know if you would like to visit the tortoise. Please see below for those that are in need of sponsorship!
