Reptile Rescue Orange County

RROC’s purpose is to find quality homes for reptiles, amphibians, Invertebrates, and all other exotic animals that people can no longer care for. RROC also provides education for the public relating to exotic animals. RROC will take in any reptile, amphibian, arachnid, or other exotic animal that needs a new home and/or medical attention. We have years of experience keeping and working with these animals. For more info on the adoption process, please see our “Adoption Policies” page. We hope this site can provide a service of finding good homes, with good people for these amazing animals! For anyone unfamiliar with the term “Herp”, this term comes from the word herpetology and is used to include all reptiles and amphibians.

The Turtle lady has quite a few turtles needing homes before any more turtles are able to come into the rescue. Before heading to a pet shop think adoption firs…t. Aquariums can be expensive, however plastic storage bins, and stock tanks make perfect enclosures for your semi- aquatic friends. Illinois law states that you cannot own more than 8 native species or herps and no more than 4 of the same species. Illinois law also states that it is illegal to propagate any native herps.

Turtle Adoption & Turtle Rescue

The parents give in and buy their children this new pet. Hoping that their children will learn responsibility. The children are ‘slacking off’ in their responsibilities. This goes on for awhile but now you are tired of taking care of this little pet. This is a very common theme among a lot of pet owners. It’s not as easy to give away a turtle as it is a dog or cat. Below are some links to sites that offer turtle adoptions. Read them carefully as not all sites accept red ear sliders. I have just gathered up sites that offer turtle adoption. Do the research and ask them of any questions you may have.

Reporting Stranded, Entangled, or Injured Sea Turtles

A stranded sea turtle is defined as any ocean turtle found dead, injured, sick, tumored, or otherwise abnormal and sometimes even normal in appearance and out of the water, usually along the shoreline. The turtle may also be in very shallow water close to shore. Sea turtles are listed and protected under the U.S. Endangered Species Act and wildlife laws of the State of Hawaii. All sea turtles, both dead and alive, are legally protected. These instructions apply exclusively to sea turtles. Due to the considerable travel distances that may be involved, and the possibility of other turtle strandings occurring at the same time, a delay in response of three hours or more may occur. There is no harm whatsoever for a sea turtle to be out of the water for many hours, provided it is not in direct hot sunlight. Sea turtles strand because they want to and need to be out of the ocean. Callers should be prepared to tell exactly where the turtle is located, whether it appears to be dead or alive, and the size of the animal. If the turtle returns to the water before someone arrives, this is not necessarily bad. Some turtles, even ones with tumors, want to rest ashore for a period of time and they may do this regularly. The size and degree of decomposition of a dead stranded turtle could make it impossible or inappropriate to load and transport the turtle to the laboratory for scientific research. DLNR-DOCARE Officers do not normally pick up stranded turtles, unless there is a law enforcement violation.

Crystal Beach Local News, Get the latest Scoop on Bolivar Peninsula, Texas, Resort community on the Gulf of Mexico

The turtle had stranded on one of the more remote parts of the peninsula, near High Island. Staff member RD Stewart immediately called the sea turtle hotline which connected him to our NOAA Sea turtle Facility. He initially thought the turtle was deceased since it was unresponsive but, under my direction, he examined the turtle closer and it was still alive. I did not think the turtle would even survive the trip back to our hospital since it was in such poor nutritional shape. The turtle was on fluids every day for the first week it was in our care, and was on antibiotics for 30 days. The turtle finally ate seafood after it had been in the hospital for 7 days. After 6 weeks in our care, the turtle had made a miraculous recovery and was cleared for release by our veterinarian. I invited RD Stewart to participate in the release of the turtle he saved from dying. The turtle was released on 6-19-2017 on the Bolivar peninsula. Galveston County Road & Bridge workers, in particular RD Stewart, have gone above and beyond to assist in saving sea turtles on the Bolivar peninsula. They are always willing to help in sea turtle conservation however they can, including placing sea turtle educational signage on the peninsula, finding nesting Kemp’s ridleys on the beach and protecting them, and rescuing stranded sick/injured sea turtles. I am so appreciative of these workers; RD has been a great asset and I want the community to know what they have done for our sea turtles on the upper Texas coast.

Western Pond Turtle Rescue

On May 19, 2015, after over six months in captivity, the two groups of western pond turtles that had been rescued in the fall of 2014 were released near their original collection site. A total of 52 turtles, 24 from the Behlor Chelonian Center in Ojai, California and 28 from the campus of UCLA, were collected and carefully transported to The Painted Turtle camp in Lake Hughes, California, an innovative camping facility catering to children with medical conditions. The privately own Painted Turtle facility utilizes acres of watered ponds for their clients and is located on the same drainage as Lake Elizabeth only 1/2 mile upstream. Once at the release facility, CDFW and Behlor staff carried the turtles to the bank of the largest pond and placed them a foot from the water, allowing them to enter the pond themselves. The release site has basking areas and quality upland habitat for the western pond turtles. CDFW’s Brian Young releases western pond turtles at The Painted Turtle. A healthy western pond turtle ready for release at The Painted Turtle. The western pond turtle, Actinemys marmoratais the only remaining freshwater turtle species native to California. A relatively large and genetically important population of western pond turtle occurs in Lake Elizabeth, located approximately 65 miles northeast of Los Angeles in the northern Antelope Valley. Starting in June of 2014 concern grew for the health of the western pond turtle population inhabiting Lake Elizabeth. Due to degrading habitat conditions, thirty-three western pond turtles were collected by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, United States Geological Service, and ECORP Consulting, Inc. on September 18, 2014 from the drying lake and taken to the Behler Chelonian Center in Ventura County. An additional 22 western pond turtles were collected by CDFW on October 24th and taken to the University of California, Los Angeles in Los Angeles County to be placed in outdoor tanks.

Turtle Rescue: Changing the Future for Endangered Wildlife: Pamela Hickman: 9781552979150: Amazon.com: Books

Outstanding overview of the plight of the world’s turtles and tortoises… Other books on this topic cannot match this one for its thorough approach as well as the current information on what is being done in the 21st century to protect the turtle. With clear, appealing photography and up-to-the-minute details laid out in an engaging format, Turtle Rescue is a welcome addition to the “Firefly Animal Rescue” series. A detailed examination of what is being done to preserve both land and sea turtles around the world with biographical information on people actively engaged in conservation work. Color photos show many species of turtles and tortoises in their habitats. A list of turtle organizations and an index complete the book. Very useful for reports, especially since many books on turtle conservation do not include land species. This book enumerates the many efforts taken to save the turtle starting with the 1959 creation of the Caribbean Conservation Corp founded in Florida through the 2005 hatching of eggs of the Ridley sea turtle in Malaysia, the first hatchlings since the early ’90’s. The major players in the conservation movement are profiled as well. Pamela Hickman attempts to not only explain the reasons that some turtle species are endangered, but includes the efforts of scientists, governments and average citizens to save them. Students will experience the plight of turtle eggs that are not only attacked by predators, but the inability of female turtles to find adequate nesting areas. Turtles are creatures of habit and will attempt to lay eggs in the same areas regardless of the condo or super highway now standing in her path. While Hickman explains the human contribution to the declining turtle population she stressing that the cause may be cultural, economical or simple ignorance. Turtle Rescue is a simple book packed full of data, colour photographs and ideas.

Reptile Rescue NJ

Unlike so many others, our Reptile Rescue organization is NOT a non-profit teetering from year to year on the edge of survival. Bill Boesenberg owns Snakes-N-Scales as a popular business, it therefore produces income to house, feed and, if need be, hospitalize injured or sick animals. We are experts with 30 years experience dealing with sick and injured animals. If you own any Reptile, frog, snake, fish, turtle, tarantula, shark, insect, python or lizard, you need us to Rescue please call us -. REPTILE RESCUE NJ. We are not the only Reptile Rescue in NJ, but we are probably the largest and, from what I’ve seen, the most qualified. The animals used in our programs are almost all orphaned reptiles rescued from a variety of unfortunate situations. These animals are important to us and are given appropriate foods, habitat, medical care and a safe, secure home for the rest of their lives. Snakes-N-Scales is part of an amazing network of state and local officials, humane, rehab and zoological professionals working constantly toward the proper care, rescue and preservation of animals both in the wild and in captivity. The photos that follow are all taken by us with animals that were brought to us unless it says otherwise. The photos are where reptile rescue starts and maybe a little intense for younger viewers, but it is our intention that everyone can look at these pages so we have tried to be careful in our presentation not to be too graphic. They are our children, we rescued them, nursed them, raised them, fed them and checked on them everyday for their entire lives while living with us. If you click on each heading you can go the reptile rescue page that discusses each group in more detail.

I can no longer care for my pet turtle

There are millions of pet turtles out there without homes. Here at the Turtle Rescue League we get calls all the time with people who want us to come and get their turtle or simply drop it off. We would be quickly overwhelmed with turtles, unable to help our native species, or special needs turtles, or even to care for the flood of incoming pets. The TRL loves turtles, but no agency could just simply take in all turtles that people declare they no longer want. TURTLES ARE THE MOST ABANDONED PET IN THE US. The problem is so bad in other countries, some have banned the importation of non-native turtles. Do not lose hope, there are always options and we can work with you. If you love your turtle, you will put in the effort to help it. If you are struggling with properly maintaining your turtle, you may be falling victim to one of the the turtle care errors.

Chinese police use inflatable turtle to rescue 13 people trapped by flood

The residents of a small community in central China owe their lives – or at least their dry clothes – to a group of quick-witted police officers and a giant inflatable turtle. After heavy rains lashed a low-lying neighbourhood in the city of Liuyang, Hunan province, 13 people found themselves trapped in their homes on Sunday. Five policemen rescue Chinese jaywalker stuck in barrier in middle of the road. The speed at which the waters rose created a potentially life-threatening situation, and police in Changsha, the Hunan capital, which administers Liuyang, knew they had to act fast and get the residents to safety. “It was an emergency,” read a statement on their Weibo microblog. “There weren’t any boats available, so we had to improvise,” it said. They found the answer in a local toy shop, in the form of a bright green inflatable turtle. Race across Hong Kong waters in inflatables 2x faster than speedboats and reach parts of city most people don’t see. While the rescue vessel was far from conventional, it was more than fit for purpose, and just two hours after it floated into service all 13 trapped residents, including several elderly people and children, had been evacuated. “Sorry for our vessel being … too cute,” police said. “But, most importantly, the people are all safe.” The story was an instant hit on social media, with many people posting messages of praise for the officers involved. Other said the images of the people being rescued put them in mind of the passage from the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West, in which the central character and his disciples are carried across a river on the back of a turtle.

Centre d’Etudes de Protection ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ d’Elevage des Chéloniens ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Turtles & Tortoises Rescue & Rehabilitation Center

Experts say the province’s turtle population has suffered for many years but concerns have resurfaced since a recent state of emergency was declared for Ontario turtles. “In Ontario, seven out of the eight species are listed as species at risk,” said turtle surgeon, Sue Carstairs, the executive and medical director at the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre in Peterborough. For the past 10 years, with the OTCC, she has helped rehabilitate injured turtles and operated on turtle shells that have been crushed by cars. The OTCC declared the state of emergency in May. “The centre has seen 650 turtles this season, double what we have seen previously and that’s probably only a fraction of the ones that are out there that aren’t found, or go unrecognized – we are just bursting at the seams,” said Carstairs. “In any environment you need biodiversity in order for it to be healthy and turtles are a huge part of that,” said Carstairs. According to Carstairs, 90 per cent of turtle deaths occur on roadways. “Their populations are in huge trouble – the problem with turtles is their life is such that you can’t afford to lose any adults because the population only remains healthy if the adult population ages for a long time and has low mortality,” said Carstairs. A new initiative explained by Carstairs outlines a future solution to the rate of turtle mortality by constructing eco passages. “The solution involves culverts running under the roads where low-lying fences lead turtles to the culvert, reducing the mortality rate.” Mollie Sitwell of Prince Edward County is an avid turtle-saver who has rescued 10 turtles this season from roadways. “Turtles are beautiful creatures – they’re just trying to get across the road to lay their eggs,” said Sitwell. Carstairs encourages people to save turtles if they can. Human safety is paramount on roadways, but if they have the opportunity to pull their vehicle over, put the four-way flashers on and help a turtle across the road in the direction they are headed to save them, they should. If a person finds an injured turtle in Ontario they are encouraged to call the OTCC hotline at, 705-741-5000.

Sea turtle Rescue Centre

The Sea turtle Rescue Centre, opened on the 19th of July 2013., is located near the pool area of Hotel Vespera, in Sunčana uvala, Mali LoÅ¡inj. It is a place where injured sea turtles will be provided with specialized care and rehabilitation. Institute as part of the project: ‘Network for the Conservation of Cetaceans and Sea Turtles in the Adriatic’ which is co-financed by EU IPA Adriatic CBC Programme. Sea turtles are incredibly resilient so if help can be provided in rescue centres it can enable them to fully recover and they can be successfully released back in to the wild. The centre also provides an opportunity for visitors to learn more about these animals through films, touchscreen applications and models, and when turtles are in recovery, visitors may see them, with minimum disturbance. In addition the centre will organise release events, with some turtles satellite tagged to enable visitors monitor their movements after they are released. Sea turtles are an ancient group of animals, inhabiting the Earth for millions of years. Of the seven species of sea turtles that live today, three species have been regularly observed in the Mediterranean Sea. The loggerhead turtle is the main species that inhabits the Adriatic Sea year round. After hatching they crawl to the sea and swim towards the open water where they mature. In the northern Adriatic they enter the benthic phase of their lifecycle when they feed on the crustacean snails and shells from the sea bed. As the northern Adriatic is a shallow sea it represents a key habitat for loggerhead turtles. If you would like to know more about our work, please visit us in the harbour of Veli LoÅ¡inj or the new Turtle Rescue Centre in Suncana uvala, if you are not able to come in person, find out everything on our web site www. The Centre is open every day from 10 until 21 except Saturday.

Welcome to the official website of Cairn Rescue USA!

We are incorporated in New York, but we rescue Cairns nationwide. Our rescue Cairns come from animal shelters and humane societies; others are released to us by their owners due to changes in family circumstances or to the owners realizing that a Cairn is not a good match for them; still others come from puppy mills and backyard breeders where they have been used as breeding stock. Our rescue Cairns are spayed/neutered, tested and if necessary, treated, for heartworm and other parasites, and brought up-to-date on their inoculations prior to their placement in loving forever homes. To see a list of our available Cairns, please see Cairns For Adoption. We do not have a shelter or facility but depend instead on a wonderful network of foster homes throughout the United States who under our officers’ guidance evaluate and rehabilitate our rescue Cairns until they are ready for placement. We are committed to rescuing as many Cairns as our funding and number of foster homes and volunteers will permit. To become a foster home and help us save more Cairns, please see our Foster page. You can also help us by volunteering to run the administrative side of our operations or create crafts that we can sell online, volunteering to foster or transport a rescue Cairn, making a tax-deductible donation of cash or of Cairn items or other crafts that we can sell online to raise funds, doing your online shopping through our affiliate program links, becoming a member of CRUSA, sponsoring a senior or special needs dog in our program, participating in our annual CRUSA Benefit Auction held in November on Facebook, liking our FacebookPage, joining the CRUSA FacebookGroup, and following us on Twitter.

Turtle Rescue Team Publishes Comprehensive Look at Past Cases

The North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine Turtle Rescue Team has been treating and releasing wild turtles since 1996 and has compiled a collection of almost 4,000 medical records, now available for consultation by researchers via the North Carolina State University Libraries Special Collections Research Center. Data available for each case include county where turtle was discovered, patient identification number, admission date, species, sex and reproductive status, physical examination findings, clinical diagnosis, last case-entry date, length of stay, and final disposition. Additional data in the records include a day-by-day description of treatment and husbandry performed for each turtle. This report summarizes 2,613 turtle cases examined between 1996 and 2012 by the Turtle Rescue Team, including 12 native species of turtle from 63 North Carolina counties. The sex distribution of those of known sex were evenly distributed. The most common presenting condition was vehicular trauma while garden equipment and fish-equipment-related trauma, pet surrender, and other human-induced injury represented an additional 154 cases. Animal attacks and trauma due to unknown causes were also represented. Other conditions diagnosed on presentation included infection, aural abscessation, nutritional disorder, neurologic disorder, buoyancy disorder, prolapse, and other. A small number of turtles were not diagnosed or were healthy. Ultimate disposition data were available for 2,318 turtles, of which 1,227 were released to the wild. The epidemiological data presented here are similar to information collected in Illinois, Tennessee, and Virginia. Medical records from wildlife hospitals and primary care facilities represent an important opportunity to gain valuable insight into the epidemiology of human interaction with native wildlife species.

Sea Turtle Trapped Upside Down in Trench is Rescued in Time

It took at least nine people to rescue a loggerhead turtle after she flipped onto her back trying to get back to the sea. It was no easy chore for the volunteers because adult loggerheads weigh 350-pounds on average. This female had fallen into a trench on a rocky beach at Blowing Rocks Preserve on Florida’s Atlantic coast, couldn’t right herself, and was fading fast. Florida Fish and Wildlife professionals responded along with members of the Nature Conservancy and worked to dig the turtle out of the sand and safely flip her over so she could continue her trip to the ocean. The Fish and Wildlife Commission documented the rescue on its Facebook page and is using it as a “Teaching moment” for people headed to the beach this summer. The commission posted tips on protecting and helping the endangered turtles, including advice to refill any holes dug on the beach and stay away from turtles in the evening so they won’t be disturbed on their way to the sea. Loggerheads are powerful and graceful swimmers in the water, but can become disoriented on land. Efforts to protect them in recent years have included declaring 88 beaches “Critical habitat” for the species and even a Coast Guard rescue of 200 turtles when they were trapped in cold ocean currents on the North Carolina coast in January.

Man evading arrest hits police dog in face with rock Pet Rescue Report

In Kingman, Arizona, a man trying to evade arrest on Thursday is alleged to have hit a police dog with a rock breaking the animal’s teeth. Adam Benjamin Frankel, 33, was arrested on suspicion of three counts of animal cruelty, escape, criminal damage, felonies and disorderly conduct in relation to a domestic violence charge. According to the Daily Miner, police arrived at a home where Frankel was accused of assaulting his 46-year-old aunt after kicking in her front door. The woman told authorities her nephew grabbed her and threw her to the ground. Deputies had been interviewing the two women at the residence when Frankel was apprehended. He denied all charges, and as police were walking him to the squad car, Frankel took off and ran into the desert. A Department of Public Safety Ranger helicopter and an officer with his canine patrol assisted. When the dog and his handler located Frankel hiding in the brush, he again tried to run, but not before allegedly picking up a rock and hitting the dog in the mouth – causing the animal to suffer three broken teeth. Frankel has been booked into the Mohave County jail. There is no word on the extent of the dog’s injuries, however his surgery has exceeded $8,000.
