Tortoise Center Wants Out of the Shelter Business

This article is from the Las Vegas Review-Journal.  The Desert Tortoise Conservation Center, a federal facility, is moving to discontinue accepting more than 1,000 unwanted tortoises per year and is considering partnering with HSUS or another animal group to take over the function of tortoise adoption.  As a community, we should be part of the solution to tortoise rescue in Nevada. Who can help?
