Found Turtle

(Orlando, FL)

I was coming home in the middle of a thunderstorm, and i saw a small turtle on the side of the street of where i live. I picked it up, and took it inside. It seems to be missing it's right front leg, and it isn't moving much. What can i do for it for now while i try to get arrangements for it?

It will need to be warm. Offer water to drink.

The faster you can find a rescue center or vet who will help you, the better. If it really is missing a leg, it's in serious trouble.

Keep it slow and steady.
