Hi, I’m Timmy

Hi, my name is Timmy and I'm a Brisbane Short Necked Turtle looking for a forever home!

I love swimming around my pond and climbing onto my crate to soak up the sunshine!

To keep me happy and comfortable I require a decent sized glass tank with furniture, a heater and UV light or even better an outdoor pond set up with a small fence to stop me going on an adventure!

If you are looking for something a little different, than I'm your gal. Please fill out an adoption application including a picture of your enclosure/outdoor pond and reptile license, https://www.rspcaqld.org.au/expression-of-interest-to-adopt

Adoption Price: $50

Note: If an animal is located at Petbarn, RSPCA World For Pets or RSPCA Op Shops, you can visit the store direct.

Please note:

  • A property check may be required before ADOPTION to ensure the safety and welfare of adoption animals. Rental agreements allowing pets will be required for adoptions into rental properties. Differential pricing may apply.
  • The website is live and updates frequently, there is a chance that by the time you have completed the Apply to Adopt form the animal you have an interest in might have been adopted by another party.
  • While our shelters are open, not every pet available for adoption will be onsite and available in person. To express your interest, Apply to Adopt online and if it's a perfect match you will be shortlisted and contacted via phone by our Adoption Team to discuss the animal in detail.
