maybe we can cushion the blow of whatever damage they might have from this storm with some donations. 

Posting this again. Heard through the grape vine (as they are without power and will be for a while) that there is a huge mess to deal with but the family that run the rescue are safe and counting that blessing considering where they are. If you can spare it, please send a donation and help cushion the serious blow Hurricane Sandy threw their way. No details about what damage was incurred, animals incurred etc… So please keep sending good thoughts their way.

Scooter

We took Scooter the Eastern box turtle in looking all terrible and deformed after five years of poor care from someone that didn’t even know what kind of turtle they took from the wild. We gave her all the good food she required along with a proper habitat and as much outside sunshine as we could. She went from looking like an awful sickly deformed turtle to a healthy turtle despite her deformities and is still living well nearly ten years later.

The Turtle Rescue of Long Island is an INCREDIBLE rescue run by Julie Maguire in Long Island, NY. I have learned so much from her , her mailing list , and friends on the Russian Tortoise yahoo list. Every story I hear about the turtles and tortoises she cares for is inspirational. I’ll probably post more about TRLI but for now Here’s the story of Scooter, their biggest success story.
