Alpine’s Lions Tigers & Bears Exotic Animal Rescue is calling on children and animal enthusiasts in the San Diego area to choose the name of their very first rescue: a 100-pound sulcata turtle.
The turtle is now calling the sanctuary home, but it still needs another familiar solace: a name.
Thus, the animal sanctuary hosts a small name “shell-ection”. To submit your choice of name for the turtle and vote, you can visit the animal sanctuary website here.
The establishment requests a donation (regardless of the amount) in order to complete the name form and vote.
The virtual voting portal will close this Friday. The turtle’s name will be announced on the facility’s social media platforms in the coming weeks.
Locals and visitors can take an educational trip to Lions Tigers & Bears and meet the new turtle as well as big cats, bears and other animals.
The sanctuary participates in Kids Free October, which offers a free child pass with the purchase of an adult “Member for a Day” pass.
