Wish this cute turtle a very “Happy New Birthday”!

This cute “Indian mud turtle” also known as “Flap shell turtle” was handed over by Mr. Prashant Basawraj Patil a XI standard student and resident of Kupwad to Mr. Kiran Naik at Animal Rahat’s Home for Retired Bullocks (HRB). The turtle was found by Prashant’s elder sister Ms. Manjushri a first year student of MBBS at Mirajon the middle of the road on her way to college in the morning and she immediately called her brother for help.

The turtle was thoroughly examined by Dr Chetan Yadav, Senior Veterinary Officer of Animal Rahat and the she was found to be healthy. The forest department was informed who advised Animal Rahat to rehabilitate the turtle at Krishna River which is under their jurisdiction. Kiran took a good care of the turtle with appropriate food and water and released her at Krishna River next day morning.

Animal Rahat is a non-profit organisation that relies on donations from compassionate individuals to continue to provide relief for suffering animals in India. Consider giving someone you love the gift of saving an animal’s life by making a donation to Animal Rahat in his or her name.

Isn’t she CUTE?
