Currently seeking a home for our tortoise, Luigi! Marissa, Luigi’s original owner, has left for college and his foster family is no longer able to take care of him. He is a handsome, friendly Russian tortoise who although lacks in speed, makes up for in personality. His favorite activities include eating, climbing, digging, and napping. He is a low maintenance pet who enjoys being handled once acclimated to his environment- perfect for families who might want a pet, but not ready for the expenses or responsibilities of a dog or cat. Supplies and 3x4 terrarium included! Please message me for questions and more specific details! He currently resides in Naperville, IL

Just want to give you some advice. Do your research on anyone interested. Many new members join and/or only post when there is a free tortoise available. They take the free ones just to turn around and sell them only caring about the money not the tortoise.

I can agree with this. However I also can be vouched for as I’ve taken in a rescue from Windy City Reptiles. His name is Patrick Carroll and would be happy to vouch for me. He can be found, along with his reptile rescue organization, on Facebook. He can attest to the already medium sized group of tortoises I house, along with many other normal and not-so-norm pets! Please feel free to reach out to me at [email protected] or seek Pat for referral. Thanks!

Marissa, have you found a home for him yet?

This is off topic and I'm new to this forum, but does Windy City Reptiles still exist? Every link I go to is broken when I google that name, there doesn't seem to be a website or Facebook page up or anything. I would just like to know because I am in the market for a tortoise in the Chicagoland area and I'm having trouble finding any breeders or rescue (I would like to avoid buying from pet stores).
