PETCO has launched a “turtle relinquishment program,” encouraging people to bring in their pet turtles and give them to PETCO, telling people that their turtles will get to “grow up” at Concordia Turtle Farm. 
But the truth, according to PETCO, is that many of these turtles are actually recycled back into the pet trade! And Concordia Turtle Farm? It’s actually a massive turtle meat factory farm that ships more than 2 million hatchlings overseas every year!
