Shirley an adult female Slider was brought into our facility with a misaligned spine and a deformed carapace. This pretty Slider struggles to submerge herself in water, but she swims well otherwise.
She will therefore need to be cared for as she cannot be released and instead can make a great educational / ambassador animal.
Shirley is residing at Atlanta Wild Animal Rescue Effort (AWARE) just outside Metro Atlanta. Do not let distance be a factor as we can work with you to arrange transport to most locations. Please note that the receiving facility is responsible for all charges associated with placement and/or transport of the animal.
To help make your inquiry easier, this Turtles intake number is: 19-0473. We will be glad to help answer any questions you may have if interested in providing placement for Shirley.
