Fall in Love Friday: Sheldon, a turtle

Sheldon (get it?) is a two-year-old red-eared slider turtle that was surrendered to the Toronto Humane Society.

While turtles can make great apartment pets – they’re quiet and they don’t need to be walked – they aren’t for everyone.

They require a large pond to swim, and a large space to roam around. They also need a diet high in protein and vegetables.

And, while they’re initially quite small, they grow much bigger very quickly.

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