WAKE UP YOUR PET: Northwest Tortoise

Posted: Updated:

WAKE UP YOUR PET - Raising a tortoise is no easy task. Terese Meyer of Northwest Tortoise says people make many mistakes when taking on a tortoise as a pet.

She runs the only tortoise rescue in the area and sees first hand what can happen when someone does not know how to care for the animal.

She rescues tortoises who have been mistreated. She also wants to educate people on how to properly care for the tortoises and provide the right equipment for owners.

Terese also breeds several kinds of tortoises and you can find more information on all of her services here.
