Hello everyone, I hope you're all doing well and having a good day.

I have had my russian tortoise Sheldon for about 3 years now and I love him with my whole heart and wish more than anything that could continue to care for him.

However, due to some recent health issues I unfortunately haven't been able to give him the attention he deserves. I want to be completely sure that he will be going to a home that will love and care for him the way I have for the last few years. So I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of places to find adopters that are safe and reliable.

I've heard bad things about craigslist and facebook marketplace but I wasn't sure where else to look. It's most important to me that Sheldon ends up happy and well taken care of.

Thank you so much in advance, this forum has helped me so much in the past! :<3:

Post a picture here and give a general location. Hopefully a forum member will be able to take him.
Just be careful of the newbies that join just to ask about and get a free tort. They usually only want to get free to resell.
