I guess it is a good thing the new cat and dog rule regarding putting animals down does not apply to tortoises.

Well it is not a law per se but our "brilliant" governor (sarcasm deployed) now wants dogs and cats put down in like 48 hours because of so called budget problems. He is putting haydens law on hold which normally they had to wait a week to put down a lost animal now it has been reduced to 48 hours I believe

Well that sucks! So the tortoise is actually getting special treatment with such a long waiting period?

Kinda upset now that I found out that she HAS to go to the "Northern California Herpetological Society" she WON'T be up for adoption at the shelter, she gets to be moved around for some time....

why even tell people it will be available if they send all of them to rescue?
At least rescue has some right to find a good home and can weed out those that have no clue.

Funny thing, I drove by this shelter today. Now who knew there would be a tortoise in their waiting to get out.

I don't think it has to by a law, they probably have a deal with them to take care of exotics for them, my chapter of the CTTC has several deals like that, we take them in for them and then find homes.

I do agree it is dumb to put them up like that and then tell you that they can't adopt it out.
