Tortoise Sanctuary

Our tortoise sanctuary cares for stray & homeless Mediterranean tortoises.

 

We can rehome your tortoise if you can no longer cope with caring for them. Every tort has a health check, worming & microchip. To cover the costs of this, we ask for a £60 donation to take a tortoise in, and to rehome one.

Please contact us if you find a stray or would like to re-home your tortoise

 

Tortoises for Re-Homing

All our tortoises have homes at the moment - any for rehoming will be added as soon as they are ready.
