You were gifted a sick tortoise, and providing great care. You need to do what you feel is best. I appreciate you taking care of Molly!

No- AC does not know...only my “accomplice” who won’t be implicating herself. Still nervous...
I'm still reading about getting a tort. I have much to learn. As far as the animal abuser (s) go, I would go nowhere near them, & I'd tell AC not to reveal my identity to them.

If you don't know otherwise, i'd check out state & local animal rescue laws & regulations. Since you have torts already, & AC can verify by an inspection that you take good care of them, you should be okay as a mom. However, some states have very strict rules about who can rescue & care for the abused animal(s).

Just my thoughts. Thank you for rescuing Molly & taking her to the vet. The cruelty to animals is appalling!!

Thanks everyone... AC came out and told the person helping the situation that the man had been investigated before and was currently not allowed to own animals. The three dogs he has Are registered under his mother, who lives with him. The officer that came out said that now the challenge is trying to get the animals away from him without him suing them. 🙄 Gotta love California!

Apparently Molly has not been mentioned as being lost or stolen. At least the "tortoise saver" is notifying you. I am still concerned about the other tortoises getting proper care.

i’ve already put a call into the animal shelter letting them know that we would adopt the other two once they rehabilitate them if they are sick as well. Good Golly Miss Molly is in our temporary hospital cage that serves chickens, tortoises and anything else that comes our way. It is about 80° in the sun here in Southern California so I’m gonna let her enjoy the outdoors for a while until we need to leave...She is munching on grass quite happily and is moving around a lot. All great signs we got to her in time!

Thank goodness you rescued her, don't feel guilty the owner probably even won't notice she's gone.
She is in a much better place now and has a chance of a longer healthier life.
I'd be tempted to report the owner to whatever animal rescue organisations you have there so that the others can be saved too.

I know cukes aren’t on the “good list” but I put her vitamins on it and using it to help hydrate her more. I also sprinkled moistened grassland pellets on it for good measure... Go, Miss Molly... go!
Sneaky she might catch on when she only gets cakes with sprinkles!
