North Attleborough Animal Shelter Pet of the Week


Toby is a 5-year-old male African Spurred tortoise. He loves cruising around and is quite the character. He demands fresh greens daily. He’s still a baby by tortoise standards, and will probably reach his full size of 100-200 pounds by the time he is 15 years old. His lifespan is over 50 years so he will be with you for many years to come.

If you are interested in Toby or another animal at the North Attleborough Animal Shelter, please call 508-699-0128 or email us at Please note due to the current COVID-19 protocol, the shelter is only open by appointment. Please contact the shelter to set one up or get more info.

We also appreciate monetary donations in the form of a check or gift card to help in the continued care and support of our shelter animals.
