Tortoise Rescue

Unfortunately, people sometimes get a pet they are not prepared for. This is common with larger tortoises. People underestimate the lifespan, care needs, and in some cases eventual size of these creatures. It has become a passion of ours to rescue these amazing animals. 


Our current rescue is a Sulcata tortoise named Stretch that was abandoned at Maple Woods Community College. Stretch lives with Dr. Watkins during the summer months and at the clinic in the winter.
