    I have wanted a pet turtle for years but now that I am available to get one, I am vegan and huge into animal rights. Is it right to have a turtle as a pet.

    I agree with Styna. Look into adopting a turtle from Craigslist or an animal shelter, and make sure that its given proper care, and plenty of space. Owning a pet turtle can be a bit costly (I used to have two), so before you decide to take one in, make sure that you can handle caring for one :)

    A lot of people have turtles as companion animals.
    I would try looking on Craigslist or something like that, to see if anyone is trying to rehome one.
    Don’t buy one from a store, and definitely don’t take one from the wild.

    I have grown up with 7 brothers and sisters. 4 brothers, 3 sisters. I was raised eating animal products, and never once was taught to value animals. When I was 13 years old I did some research for myself and found out the horrible truth's behind the meat industry. Continued my research to this day on concerning topics. Im now an animal activists and have been teaching people about these horrors I've discovered and how we as a group can speak up for these creatures whoo can't do it for themselves.
