Please Donate To the Fernando Fund

Sadly, we learned that our top volunteer Fernando Cheng died recently at a very young age. He loved the turtles and tortoises at American Tortoise Rescue and spent happy hours helping us feed the many rescues and build safe enclosures.

Fernando is pictured (right) with American Tortoise Rescue co-founder Marshall Thompson at a California Fish & Wildlife meeting where they both protested the live food markets throughout the state where thousands of turtles are sold alive for food.
