Reptile Rescue In The Mother Lode

Sheldon The Turtle Has An Adventure

While the Calaveras Humane Society team was meeting in our offices with the head of Milo’s Misfits Reptile Rescue Tuesday, a good Samaritan brought in a native pond turtle that she saved from certain death on a busy street.

Our first reptile rescue! We promptly named it “Shelldon,” then handed the critter off directly to Milo’s Misfits for assessment and release back into the wild — further from a roadway this time.

  • Note: Your Calaveras Humane Society is not in the business of wildlife rescue, so please don’t bring us injured wild critters. A far better resource for your deer, jackrabbit, squirrel, raccoon and wild bird needs is our friends at Tri County Wildlife Care. This was just a solitary case of impeccable timing.
