A big turtle hug to Hikari, manufacturer of Hikari Turtle Reptile Sticks, for donating a year's supply of food to the rescue.  Food is our most expensive outlay at the rescue so this was very much appreciated.   Visit Hikari and get your turtle some great food!

A small gopher with huge teeth (or Marshall) ate a hole in our pond.  Now we need to replace the whole thing with rebar and concrete.  A wonderful volunteer started a project donation page at www.crowdrise.com, a fun and entertaining nonprofit site you cannot afford to miss!  Please donate so the turtles do not have to use straws to breathe and the fish will stop flopping around!
