Hello! My name is res10-21-11
|Species:||Turtle - Other||Age:||Adult|
Red Eared Slider Trachemys scripta elegans -I- size 4' approx.age 7 years and 2 monthsHave you noticed how many aquatic turtles are here at Arrowhead. THERE ARE A LOT! Even if you don't want to adopt one of us, maybe you can contribute to help us. As there are so many of us, they are trying to build a new pool. New pools take water...& cash. Pools take rock work & mud & space & filtration &...did I mention...cash. We of course need food and while you can't eat cash...you get the idea. Arrowhead has NO PAID STAFF. Every penny goes to animal care. If you can’t quite adopt one of us, consider a contribution to help us all out. http://www.arrowheadreptilerescue.org/help/index.html
Rescue Group Info...
We are 30+ volunteers made up of veterinarians, veterinary technicians, wildlife rehabilitators, educators, and reptile enthusiasts. I personally am a small animal clinical veterinary technician since 1996, advanced wildlife rehabilitator for the state since 1997, member CART County Animal Rescue Team, member national HSUS N-DART Disaster Response Team, member Ohio Exotic Animal Emergency Response Team. My experience is as an emergency veterinary technician, and more recently hospital manager of a mutli-vet practice. I do this because I love giving up all my time, part of my home, and shoveling all my finances into these animals, and I really enjoy speaking with pet owners at 3am.
Visits to our foster homes to see and adopt the animal are granted by appointment only.
Adoption fees set half of retail value. Most reptiles adoptions are between $10-50. Approval requires completion of 3-page adoption application, submission of photos of cage and habitat, and veterinarian reference. Adopters sign a basic adoption agreement stating they will provide proper care of the pet for life, which we can provide upon request.
