I'm in San Diego and would love to help I can to pick ups and temp homes for babies and I can surf the web for torts in need and for help send emails to places that need some tips on tortoise care
Any type of tort. I am low on funds and will need funds for rescue/buying torts shipping and vet visits if required

It is in hamilton ontario canada not sure if the TRN just deals with the states but this is an ad that gets reposted every month or so with the same pictures. He has 3 red foots and one elongated tort all housed together on what looks like aspen.

I have spoke to him near the begining of the month for all 4 torts he wants 1500 too much for me and and I have no experience with Elongated tortoise nor do I know how to properly care for one.

Just thought I would share the ad and get any feed back to see if it is worth saving the money to purchase them?

Here is the add for the Elongated tortoise

http://hamilton.kijiji.ca/c-pets-other-pets-for-sale-Elongated-tortoise-W0QQAdIdZ436564614

Side question is it even safe/recomened to breed a tort that has pyrimiding? (Not that I would breed them but he is selling them as a breeding trio so I was just curious)

Thank you for your time and info

They don't look bad. What is the reason you were wanting to rescue? They have slight pyramiding. The price is way too much.

The pyramiding was just the first look concurn he keeps them in a closet and has the red foots housed with the elongated tort. As well their beding being aspen I didn't think was healthy.

I was just bringing it to the TRN attention. in canada the price always seems to be double if not tripple the price in the states. But I agree 1500 is to much, I figure this add was first posted in november so give it an other month or and if he doesn't get the salcutas he is looking for I'll see how low he will go.

Thank you for your time

I agree, doesn't sound very healthy at all. But TRN is not in a position to come up with that kind of money. Especially in their condition at the moment.. good looking out for them...

Hi everyone! I'm a fairly new member on the site and I would like to help with the rescue you have. I live in Phoenix AZ. Please let me know how I can help. I am a flight attendant so I am also in Boise ID so that may have some advantages too..

Hi All! It's been a while since anyone posted in this thread. :) Here is the link to another thread regarding a RedFoot that looks like it really needs help.

http://www.tortoiseforum.org/thread-65724.html

Is anyone in the San Antonio Area?
There has already been a reply to this post. There is someone picking this redfoot up. I will double check and PM them to make sure. Thank you ..

I would be willing to foster him and look for a home for him. I tried to contact seller through phone and text but no answer. I wont have room for three full grown ones or else i would keep him.

If Desi just wants to foster, he could always hitch a ride some time with my hubby and come here. I still have some room for "special" case tortoises.

How am I just now reading these posts?! This is awesome!! I too have started rescuing torts lately and have had some great success. I'd love to be apart of this! I always have room for more rescues.

3E63Fc3J75Ha5M55Jdd32c93ef0852e741a40.jpg Here is an ad on SA TX CL. The Tortoise has a great yard now, but I talked to the owner and she's only had her for 6 months, now she is moving and can't keep her. Evidently the pyramiding was from prior care. The tortoise is about 70 lbs. She said about as big as a door mat. She wants to get $400 for her. Don't know if she needs to be rescued or not. May make a nice addition for some one. I would be willing to help in any way.

Having to re-home my Female Sulcata Tortoise, she needs a big yard she does dig so she can have a tunnel, the one she has dug right now it is about 3ft deep THERE IS A RE-HOMING FEE! 210-854-7511
