One winter morning, a box is placed, discreetly, in front of the gate of the house where Abel, 18, and his father Xavier live, in Étampes (Essonne).
Inside, twenty-three turtles piled up.
The shells are in a bad state, the turtles have a cold.
They should be overwintering, and instead, here they are, wide awake in the Jeudon family's old bathroom, transformed into a quarantine room for new pets (NAC) abandoned and taken in by Abel .

“I founded the SOS P'tites Bêtes association six years ago to help NACs, these snakes, small and large lizards, frogs which are regularly abandoned by their owner and which are less well taken into account than dogs or cats, explains the young man.
Within the association, we collect abandoned animals, we take care of them, we treat them if they are sick, we install chips in those for whom it is obligatory, we do the paperwork.
And then we put them up for adoption.
