How is Spike Doing?

Updated: Sep 5, 2020

Folks often ask how Spike is doing these days. Spike, an African Tortoise, has been the Mission’s mascot for 17 years. Originally the CEO’s son’s pet, Spike (pictured at left), has grown into the mascot’s position, charming the children in the shelter and calming the adults.

After a long recovery period following a tragic car accident four years ago, Spike is nearly normal today, taking his daily walk and eating great. He has a life expectancy of 150 years, so at 17, he is in his adolescence. Spike would love to mate. If you know of an available female version, please text 502-345-1300.
