ANDY IS PENDING ADOPTION - WE ARE NOT TAKING ANY MORE APPLICATIONS FOR HIM AT THIS TIME

Hi! My name is Andy!

I was brought into the shelter as a stray and then transferred to rescue to help me heal and find my forever home. My shell started to peel because I didn't have the right things that I needed, such as UVB, heat, diet, and supplements BUT as time goes on, with these things corrected, my shell will improve.

So a little bit about me; I'm a vegetarian and I love the outdoors. I am a great eater and I love to explore. My Foster Mom says I'm a very sweet shelled being who is looking forward to having my own space to roam!

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 by one of our adoption counselors.

PLEASE NOTE:
1- We can only accept applications from interested parties who are in or near San Diego County, California at this time.
2- We do not ship reptiles but we may be willing to work with you if you are willing to travel if you are still in Southern California.
3- #2 will depend on the animal that you are applying for and is at the discretion of the board of directors.
