Most people who own turtles never really think about what will happen to their beloved pet once they die. While it is possible to keep a turtle for its entire life, it is more common for people to release them into the wild or take them to a pet store.
If you are thinking about taking your turtle to a pet store, you may be wondering if they will accept it. The answer is that it depends on the store.
Some pet stores, like Petco, do not accept turtles because they are considered to be wild animals. Other stores, like Petsmart, will accept turtles but may not have the facilities to care for them properly.
It is important to remember that turtles are wild animals and should not be kept as pets unless you are prepared to care for them properly. If you are not sure if you can care for a turtle properly, it is best to take it to a shelter or rescue organization that can give it the care it needs.
