We're asking you to help raise funds to get the remaining plywood & building materials to enlarge the tortoise facility as have several requests to take other tortoises in.

YEAH, Lowes has agreed to DONATE almost half of the materials and give a HUGE discount on the remaining materials we need to buy, which is what we need your help with.

Hope I didn't traumatize or embarrass Travis the manager but gave him a big ole' "python hug" right in the store isle!!!

We still need to raise at least $500 for the rest of the plywood for the floor and walls, 2x3's for framing, screws, wood sealant, deck paint, hinges and 2 sliding glass doors.

This Fundrazer is for those that would like to help & donate to the Tortoise House cause.

Think we'll name it the "Lowes & Friends of IRR Tortoise House".
To make it a fun project & get people involved, instead of a barn raising we're going to have a "tortoise barn raising". Even if you don't have building skills you can come help "baby sit" the herd while the construction is going on.

Haha, believe me when I say baby sitting a herd of tortoises, several well over 50 no easy task. Especially when they all want to go in different directions!!!

Weekend date to be determined but thinking of either of the last 2 weekends in June. Want to get it done before the summer heat sets in. 

If your a long time follower of ours on Facebook and Twitter you know we get a fair number of BIG tortoises, like the delightful Franklin we came back from California with a few weeks ago.

Anyone interested in participating let us know by going thru messages on our Facebook Page.

Damocles, J J, Digger, Last Chance, Sharlet, Maud, Hard Luck, Larry, Wilbie, Flapjack and the rest send you a big thank you and lots of tortoise "hugs".
