@ARLBostonRescue saves a turtle in trouble due to the strange NE weather trends.

We’ve been having crazy weather around here. it is super warm, then a lot of snow, then super warm, and then kinda in the middle. This makes the humans crazy! They don’t know if they should put the spring/summer clothes away or not. Mre importantly? This affects our cold-blooded friends the most! In their case its not just about what to wear it’s about how their bodies help keep them alive! 

Thankfully, the great people at the American Rescue League care about all animals that need assistance. From fur beasts stuck in a tree to shelled friends in a lake. We’re so glad this snappy got a hand <3.
