Welcome, Truman the Tortoise!

If you’ve been following us on Instagram, you may have seen Truman stay with us before. Truman’s owner lived relatively close by, and whenever she traveled she would bring him to our house to tortoise sit.

About a year ago she relocated a few hours north. Along with beautiful land and scenery, going a few hours north brings colder weather, especially during the winter.

Last year she kept Truman inside her home, which is a difficult task with a growing tortoise. Truman is a growing boy and much too large to be inside this winter. We had room in the yard, so he is now our winter guest, or possibly a permanent resident depending on his owner’s needs in the future.

He has his own enclosure with a heated house and tortoise friends for neighbors. Truman is enjoying exploring his new surroundings and trying new kinds of greens and veggies. We’re sure he feels right at home.

Check out our Instagram for more with Truman and all our wonderful rescue animals.
