need help releasing turltes

I'm new to this forum and not sure where i would post this. I have 2 healthy Red ear sliders that i've had for 8 years now and i'm being deployed. It saddens me to do this but i want to release them but i dont think they would survive. I dont have any family here to leave them with so not an option. I really would like to let them go back to nature. How would i go about doing this or what is another option? Zoo maybe? They are free to a good home too if someone is interested. I'm in Round Lake beach, IL.

I am in Toltec Arizona if you want to overnight them to me. I have a few empty tanks that can be set up in no time. It mite cost you like 20$ or so to overnight them but they will go to a good home. I'll PM you my address just encase you want to.

right now I have 4 RES and 1 Yellow Belly Slider and know a good amount about them so they will be taken care of.

I recommend getting them a new home. Human-raised RES don't survive the wild.

If you have no better choice than to release them... I suggest looking up any lakes in your surrounding areas and finding out the laws applicable to RES. Some states/cities/reserves forbid the release of certain animals because it can upset the ecosystem.

You can usually find a park ranger to speak to~ so good luck.

i live in Norwich New York and i would be happy to take in two new sliders and they can join the family.trust me they will be going to a really good home..i do not know how long it would take but when they arrive i will personally go to the post office and bring them into my home myself:) what do you think? Private message me if you are interested..i will pm u my address like he said lol:)
