LEARN HOW TO TAKE CARE ABOUT YOUR DOG'S HEALTH!

WELCOME TO OUR CLUB!

The California Turtle & Tortoise Club (CTTC) was created to promote the preservation, conservation, welfare, study and dissemination of knowledge pertaining to all turtles and tortoises.  We are a California Public Benefit Corporation recognized as non-profit by the IRS under 501(c)(3).

 

In light of our proximity to the Mojave Desert, the Kern County Chapter's primary focus is, of course, on the threatened Desert Tortoise (Gopherus agassizii) and learning to keep it in the best simulation possible of its natural habitat.

 

Many club members also have numerous other species of turtles and tortoises.  We believe in the proper care of all species. Every animal has the right to be treated with respect and kept in an environment or habitat where it can thrive.

The Kern California Turtle & Tortoise Club is dedicated to educating people about the preservation and conservation of turtles and tortoises throughout California.

Interested in learning to care for your turtle or tortoise?  Check out our Care Advice to raise and keep healthy happy turtles and tortoises.

Hoping to adopt a turtle or tortoise?  Let us help you.  Our adoptions chair has all the information you need to get started, including permits to keep a desert tortoise.
