Rocco was abandoned this winter of 2014. He came in with very puffy eyes and Upper Respiratory Infection and had to have several rounds of antibiotics to clear his lungs. He is off medications this spring, but his eyes are still puffy at times. The DVM feels in a good home, a good diet, and lots of love, he could be a great addition to the family.

He enjoys basking in the sun, munching flowers, and sniffing toes. Rocco is just one example of the many homeless pet desert tortoises available for adoption. Desert tortoises are sweet and gentle pets that must live outdoors in a backyard with a few requirements like edible tortoise plants.
