Massachusetts Turtle Rescue, Inc
71 Fernwood St
Massachusetts Turtle Rescue, Inc., exists because of the great need of medical care, permanenet housing, and the need to start up captive breeding programs to enable the surivial of the chelonia species through it's most difficutlt challenge of it's 200 million year presence of earth. This challenge that turtles and tortoises are facing are at the hands of humans. Their ultimate demise if intervention is not taken. MTR is talking such measures of intervention by providing medical care that they need as a result of their capture and inhumane treatment as they go through the pet trade (often from such countries as Asia and Africa), providing them with permanent housing for the rest of their lives, and initiating captive breeding programs to do our part to see that future collection of the already vulnerable wild populations will cease.
