Laverne an adult female yellow bellied Slider was brought into our facility with an eye and nare injury from an unknown trauma.
Additionally, Laverne suffered from shell deformities due to an improper diet fed by original rescuer that kept her as a pet for many years. She also struggles to submerge herself in water, but she swims well otherwise.
This pretty Slider will therefore need to be cared for as she cannot be released and instead she can make a great educational / ambassador animal.
Laverne 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 aquatic Turtles intake number is: 19-0506. We will be glad to help answer any questions you may have if interested in providing placement for Laverne.
