Meet Fred, the delightful 18-year-old turtle patiently awaiting his forever home! This shelled companion is more than just a cute face; he’s a unique addition to any household, ready to become the perfect addition to your family.
Fred’s care is as special as his personality. As his new guardian, ensure a spacious and secure aquatic habitat of 100-gallons for this water-loving turtle. A basking area is a must for him to soak up sun and regulate his body temperature.
Fred is a discerning eater; a well-balanced diet of commercial turtle pellets, fresh veggies, and the occasional treat will keep him happy and thriving. Regular check-ups with a reptile-savvy vet are essential, treating him like any other family member.
Keep Fred engaged with suitable toys and activities. Turtles are curious, requiring mental and physical stimulation for their well-being.
Fred is not just a pet; he’s a lifelong companion bringing joy to a caring home. Ready to welcome him? Visit Toronto Humane Society at 11 River Street to start the adoption process.
Note: Turtles and other small domestic animals are 50% off adoption fees for the month of January 2024.
