Hello! My name is JJ
|Species:||Turtle - Other||Age:||Adult|
Male Red-eared Slider ~Trachemys scripta elegans .6' Years ago a box of hatchlings were left on a door step. The human who rescued us tried very hard to take care of us. Early on my diet may not have been perfect and that is likely why my shell flares out a bit. Now years later, it seems I and my friends have outgrown our house and our human. I could do well on my own but my friend Shelly is here too. DO you have the space for us?Adoption fee requiredAvailable Now!Apply online to adopt at http://www.arrowheadreptilerescue.orgWE DO NOT SHIP!
Rescue Group Info...
We are 30+ volunteers made up of veterinarians, veterinary technicians, wildlife rehabilitators, educators, and reptile enthusiasts. I personally am a small animal clinical veterinary technician since 1996, advanced wildlife rehabilitator for the state since 1997, member CART County Animal Rescue Team, member national HSUS N-DART Disaster Response Team, member Ohio Exotic Animal Emergency Response Team. My experience is as an emergency veterinary technician, and more recently hospital manager of a mutli-vet practice. I do this because I love giving up all my time, part of my home, and shoveling all my finances into these animals, and I really enjoy speaking with pet owners at 3am.
Visits to our foster homes to see and adopt the animal are granted by appointment only.
Adoption fees set half of retail value. Most reptiles adoptions are between $10-50.

Adopters sign a basic adoption agreement stating they will provide proper care of the pet for life, which we can provide upon request.
