Fall in Love Friday: Warturtle, 11-year-old turtle

Warturtle is an 11-year-old red-eared slider turtle who is looking for a forever home.

When it comes to turtles, forever is a mighty long time: they can live for 50 years.

Anyone considering adopting, or purchasing a turtle, needs to do their research. Warturtle was brought to the Toronto Humane Society when she became sick. She has been given the all-clear for adoption.

Like any turtle, she could make a great apartment pet, as she doesn’t need to be walked. However, she will need a large space, including a pond to swim in, a space to roam, and a heat source. She also needs a diet high in protein and vegetables.

If a pet like Warturtle is for you, visit the Toronto Humane Society at 11 River St., or email specialspecies@torontohumanesociety.com.
