What's a tortoise rescue operation to do when one lonely tortoise is picked on and shunned by all of the other residents? Joy and Geoff Bloor, owners of the Tortoise Garden, decided to help out poor little Timmy by presenting him with a plastic tortoise friend.

See what a little bit of friendship can do?
