Ways to help Hush Puppy's Recovery
Adopt Hush Puppy
One of the three primary missions at Sea Turtle, Inc. is rehabilitation. We work hard to rescue and return every sea turtle back to the wild. Proceeds from this adoption will go directly to purchase needed medical supplies, veterinary exams, x-rays, food and general care for our rehab turtles.
For more information please visit our Adoption Options in our Shopify Store.
Sea Turtle, Inc. is dependent on donations to fund our mission; we do not receive any governmental support. Because Sea Turtle, Inc. is a non-profit 501(C)(3), your contributions are tax deductible. We thank you for your support!
