To promote tortoise education and humane treatment
Target: Large chain pet stores who give wrong advice and poor education to buyers
Petition Background (Preamble):
I am looking for pet stores large (petsmart) and small to promote proper turtle/tortoise education. People are not given proper education when purchasing a tortoise or turtle. For instance I was told my tortoise could be kept in a large card board box and that since he was from Russia he could withstand a wide range of climates and did not need a basking light or uva uvb bulbs. I was also told to feed him canned dog food once a week!!! I was told when i was looking into purchasing a box eastern box turtle that all i had to feed him was lettuce and that he needed a hald aquatic hald terrestrial environment and that they do swim. I want to promote education for buyers so these wonderful noble creatures can reach their true lifespans. thanks- jen
We, the undersigned, want pet stores to properly education people on tortoises and turtles so that they may reach their true lifespans!
