The Animal Rescue League adopts red-eared sliders to be family pets. Under no circumstances should red-eared sliders be used for food for other animals; for experimentation or laboratory work; or for any other use other than as a family pet. The ARL strictly enforces this policy under the terms of the adoption contract.
