Post subject:  Female Sulcata *Urgent* (Wigan) (Duffy)

We have received this urgent rehoming request from a friend of an elderly couple who were left with a growing female Sulcata. They have been trying to rehome him for three years now, and they are no longer physically able to care for her.

The friend of the elderly couple emailed the following:

An elderly couple, living in Wigan, both in their mid 70s who were looking after a sulcata for a neighbour friend but then they told them they didn't want Tommy back when they moved away. So they have been trying their best.
They have had Tommy for a few years, they asked on the forum 2 years ago about finding a home.

Tommy lives in their house, they are no longer able to pick him/her up. The wife, definitely can't lift him, and her husband is now struggling. They have a small paved garden, with no grazing.

The photo of Tommy was taken 3 years ago, The owner said she is double the size now, plastron measures 18" and weighs around 4 stone.
