We make no charge for any of the work we do and we rely entirely on donations to keep the TPG running. 100% of the funding goes towards the continual development of the website; the cost of our server, bandwidth, maintenance, our popular rehoming service, lost/found service and many other areas.

Kindly consider a small donation to the Tortoise Protection Group or preferably a small regular monthly donation of 1 or 2 a month. We rely on the generosity of other fellow tortoise keepers to keep the site and all our services up and running.
