Have been advised to not take one from wild and am looking to adopt one box turtle in St. Louis, MO. Eastern, Ornate or three-toed box turtles are fine as they can be kept outdoor here based on my research.. I've built a pen in the back of my house...

Besides looking here on the Forum, you can do a Google search for turtle rescues in your area and get your name on one of their lists for adoption.

Thanks Yvonne. I've been searching for local turtle rescue centers but haven't found one. I might visit a local pet rescue store and ask them..
