We’re pleased to report that Ann Aldrich’s missing Russian tortoise Shelly Mae has been found.

She was discovered wandering in a yard at 94th Avenue West and 200th in Edmonds Wednesday. The homeowner called Thayer Cueter at Just Frogs and reported that she’d found a tortoise in her yard. When she described it, Cueter immediately connected it with Aldrich’s missing tortoise report.

“Thayer called me at midnight last night to let me know,” Aldrich said Thursday. “I was so overjoyed! My heartfelt thanks to all who helped spread the word, and especially to Thayer for being a friend to all reptiles, amphibians, and humans, and for helping bring my Shelly Mae back home!”
