This hurts my heart to do but I am needing to rehome my red foot tortoise as soon as possible. They are 6 years old and have been with me since it was a hatchling. Unfortunately due to a divorce I can no longer afford to keep them and provide the care they need. I am in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia and can travel a little outside of it if need be. I just want them to have a good home and be able to thrive. If anyone has any info on rescues in my area to possibly bring him to that would be great as well. I unfortunately wasn't able to find anything. Thanks.

@Darthmaulsmom ... I sent you a PM but maybe I wasn't clear (I'm not the best of communicators). We are a rescue (Non profit 501(c)3) Tortoise well being is "What" we care about and do everyday. We would love to help and are even willing to pay shipping.
Every Tortoise we are blessed to cross paths with in need we do everything possible to help, no matter where in the world they are. We sincerely wish the best for this tort.

Are you still looking? We are in Missouri but could easily road trip back east. We had a Cherry for 12 years that we had to rehome at the beginning of covid. We very much miss them and have resettled we the perfect home. Lmk.
