Hi! My name is Stepan the Tortoise :)

I was brought into the shelter as a stray and then transferred to rescue to help me heal and find my forever home.

So a little bit about me, I'm a vegetarian and I love the outdoors. I am full of energy and always on the go go go!.

Though there is no way to really tell what age I am, based on my color and size I am probably within the 20 - 35 years range. My species can live more than 50 years if we have a lean, high-fiber diet and a low-stress environment with the right temps and light. Bringing me into your family is a lifelong commitment, for both of us!

I require an outdoor enclosure and possibly a safe place inside when the weather is bad. Don't worry, the rescue will provide you with all of the information that you will need to prepare for my arrival :)

If you think we may be a good match, or you would like to get to know me better, please click the Adoption Application button below and you will be contacted to set up a date!
