Sponsorship / Sanctuary Stay

By sponsoring a tortoise, this allows the tortoise to stay in the sanctuary with us! There is more details about this option on the surrender page if you’d like to read more.

Because some tortoises cost more than others (i.e. requiring separate pens, space required), the donations we ask are the following:

Small Species (Russians, Greek, Hermann’s, etc)Monthly$40$30
Medium Species (Redfoots, Yellowfoots, Leopards, etc)Monthly$50$40
Large Species (Sulcata, etc)Monthly$100$80
** Note: We ask for more financial support for males only because they typically are housed alone and take more resources/space. The monthly donations are ongoing as long as you’d like the tortoise to stay with us.

We prefer sponsorship donations be set up as a subscription plan where you will get charged automatically each month through your paypal account. We will send donation receipts if requested.

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

If it’s more convenient for you to send checks monthly or yearly, please make the check to Big and Small Tortoise Rescue and Sanctuary and email us to ask where to send it at bigandsmalltortoise@gmail.com
