Advert Description

Need to re-home a tortoise? for whatever reason I can help.

I've been running Yorkshire Tortoise Shell-ter for over 20 years now. It's based at my home at the edge of the Dearne Valley Nature Reserve, Bolton Upon Dearne, S63. Your tortoise will be coming to my family home, this is not a professional organisation.

In the Summer and warm months your Tortoise will live outdoors in one of my three gardens. The main one is approximately 1,693 square feet. Your tortoise will be able to bask in the sun all day and graze on organic plants and grasses.

In the winter your Tortoise either hibernate or will move indoors into 32 square foot tortoise tables, with full temperature and humidity controls.

Our residents currently include 3 x Leopards, 3 x Tunisian Spur Thigh, 1 x Sri Lankan Star, 6 x Herman's,and 10 x Horsfields.
Our oldest is over 80 years old, our largest is over 3 feet long and our smallest is one inch.

Your tortoise would be a permanent resident. We don't rehome or sell tortoises. We don't breed tortoises. We don't accept cash donations.

I cover all future vet bills, insurance, etc.
If you have any tortoise tables, lights, equipment, etc this would be greatly appreciated. We will try to use with your tortoise, or maybe another, or equipment may be sold to help cover the costs.

When you message if you could include some information about your tortoise it would be appreciated. The answers won't affect us taking your tortoise, they just help us prepare. If you don't know any info this is ok too.
* your tortoises name
* species
* sex

* any medical conditions or history
