Fundraiser for Turtles and Tortoises, May 3

 

The Valley Chapter of the California Turtle & Tortoise Club (CTTC) will be holding its annual educational show and fundraiser Saturday, May 3, 12-4 p.m. Live turtles and tortoises will be featured to bring public awareness about their care and conservation.

This year’s featured vendor will be The Popcorn King. Nachos, hot dogs, a variety of sausages including a vegetarian dog, popcorn, chips and an assortment of beverages will be available for purchase.

A silent auction and raffle are planned to help raise funds for the club's sick and injured animal fund in addition to rehabilitation and education. Persons interested in adopting a turtle or tortoise from the chapter may do so by submitting an application either online, at the show or at a meeting. Membership in the club is not necessary to adopt an animal, but mandatory yard checks for safety and compatibility with other pets is required.

The event will be held at the Woodland Hills Christian Church, 5920 Shoup Ave., Woodland Hills, CA, at the southeast corner of Oxnard.

CTTC is a non-profit organization that is celebrating its 50th year. There are 14 active chapters in and around southern California. The Valley Chapter meets the third Friday of every month at 7:30 p.m. For more information, visit www.tortoise.org/valley. Membership and Adoption applications will be available at the show. Entry is $3 for Adults; $2 for seniors; and $2 for children over 6.
