Facts about Shellie

  • Species: Turtle - Other
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 74160

Shellie is an adult red-eared slider (semi-aquatic turtle), estimated to be about 6-8 years of age. She's a hearty girl, at about 8 inches. She enjoys taking leisurely laps around her tank and basking with all four feet spread wide to soak up as much sun as possible. She is friendly and will swim to you for food.

Red-eared sliders are a hardy species and great for first time turtle owners. They can live 20+ years and grow to 12" (carapace length). For an aquarium set-up, a good rule of thumb is at least 10 gallons per inch of turtle. Therefore, a single adult slider will require anywhere between a 75 to a 120 gallon tank. Although, they could live in a backyard fenced-in pond during summer months. For basic care info, please visit:

Shellie's adoption fee is $20. Please fill out the online application if you're interested:

About Fur Angels Animal Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

I got involved with rescue work out of love for animals. I had decided to set up my own rescue. I serve mostly deaf animals because they are first to be put down and are usually deemed untrainable, unadoptable and unlovable. I didn't feel this was right or fair.

Our Adoption Process...

We are a small rescue who cares for all our pets in
foster homes. We do NOT have a facility & all animals
are seen by appointment only, after an application has
been approved.
Dogs' adoption fee includes vetting, spaying/neutering, and any health care they may need. For some dogs, the fee may be reduced for reasons that can be made available. Cats' adoption fee include vetting, spaying/neutering, and any health care. All are heartworm negative. We require all possible adopters to fill out an adoption application, and to submit themselves to home visits by staff or volunteers, or by local rescues. Vet reference will be required and will be used. Upon adopting, an adoption contract will be signed. Call me or email to start this process.
