Sanctuary: A place of refuge or safety

Once a tortoise has Metabolic Bone Disease (MBD) and suffers significant internal and external damage from poor or incorrect care there is not much that can be done. The damage is permanent and cannot be reversed. The best outcome is to provide a safe, stress-free environment for the rest of their days.

Below is a sample of the tortoises in the sanctuary. Some are typical MBD, some have unknown aliments causing physical decline and still others are a complete mystery.

Your support allows me to continue giving them the best possible life.
