Turtle Rescue League

Saving turtles means defending their homes, preserving their ability to live free, and ensuring their path to the future. Turtles are crossing streets, laying their eggs and finding homes and mates. Turtle eggs in danger of being destroyed or in dangerous areas can still be viable turtles of tomorrow. Helping the very delicate, unborn turtle, is a task taken very seriously. The death of a mother turtle on the road does not have to end her story.

California Turtle & Tortoise Club

Each year, California Turtle and Tortoise Club Adoption Committees rescue and place hundreds of abandoned, lost, seized, injured or diseased turtles and tortoises that have been turned in by other humane organizations, members of the public, local and federal government officers and veterinarians. These statistics include how many and which species of turtle and tortoise were turned into CTTC, and how many were placed.

Members of California Turtle & Tortoise Club help to maintain the data base of captive desert tortoises, and process and issue the permits and registration materials for California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s “Permit to Possess Gopherus Tortoises” program.

Turtle Rescue of Long Island

Here in this yard… I will never know the barriers of living in a glass tank. I will never know hunger, or the fear of not knowing if I’ll eat. I will never be used to improve peoples’ images of themselves. I will never suffer for someone’s anger, impatience, or stupidity. I will never be cast out because I am too old, too ill, too unruly, or not cute enough.
