Pets can hold great appeal for youngsters until the reality of caring for one sets in. As too often happens, pets are frequently abandoned because a pet-owner decides to ignore their responsibilities, and the consequences can be more dire than one might presume. Such is the case of Tamara the turtle, a Red-eared Slider released into the wild in an area where she simply does not belong. Fortunately for Tamara a kind-hearted man takes her to a shelter where they will care for her specific needs while protecting the environment around them.
