Name: Captain Jack
Breed: California Desert Tortoise
Age: 25 years old with a 100 year life expectancy
Organization: San Diego Turtle & Tortoise Society
Captain Jack has been in foster care for over 400 days and is ready for a great family home. Unfortunately, SDTTS has SO MANY that it has been hard to get them all adopted. Captain Jack is healthy, friendly and eating well. He’s looking for a home with a minimum area outdoors of 15 x 20 with a small little dog type house, water bowl and some grass and weeds.
While he eats the natural grasses and weeds in the area, he also likes Romaine Lettuce, Cactus, Dark Greens, & Bermuda Grass Hay. SDTTS also provides several kinds of supplement foods to start off with. He will make a perfect pet for anyone with allergies and prefers an outdoor pet who can hang out with them while they garden. He will follow you around the yard and is friendly with children as well.

Free admission and parking.
