Adoption Hero


Meet Fred, the delightful turtle patiently awaiting his forever home! This shelled companion is more than just a cute face; he's a unique addition to any household. Fred, with his calm demeanor and charming shell, is ready to become the perfect addition to your family.

Fred's care is as special as his personality. As his new guardian, there are a few key things to know about providing the best environment for our friend Fred:

Aquatic Habitat: Fred is a water-loving turtle, so a spacious and secure aquatic habitat is a must. Ensure that he has a basking area where he can soak up some sun and regulate his body temperature.

Proper Diet: Fred is a discerning eater, and a well-balanced diet is essential for his health. A mix of commercial turtle pellets, fresh vegetables, and the occasional treat will keep him happy and thriving.

Veterinary Check-ups: Like any family member, Fred would need check-ups with a reptile-savvy veterinarian to ensure he's in top-notch health.

Enrichment Activities: Keep Fred engaged and entertained with suitable toys and activities. Turtles are curious creatures, and providing mental and physical stimulation is key to their well-being.

Respect for His Space: While Fred is friendly, he also values his personal space. Allow him to retreat to his basking area or underwater hideout when he needs some quiet time.

Fred is not just a pet; he's a lifelong companion waiting to bring joy to a caring home. If you're ready to welcome a charming turtle into your life and can provide the love and attention Fred deserves, come meet him and see if you're the perfect match for each other! Adopting Fred means gaining a loyal friend for years to come. If you'd like to make Fred your new forever friend, visit us at 11 River Street to start the adoption process.
