Look to adopt one from a turtle rescue operation if possible, or look for a reputable breeder. Don`t take from the wild.

Turtles in the wild move around and are not confined to one space where they have to drink water they pee and defecate in all the time. Water in ponds is also naturally filtered. If your friend keeps them in dirty water, they will eventually get sick and diseased. If she doesn`t care enough about them to keep their water clean, she certainly won`t care enough about them to take them to a vet. Then they will die and she won`t have to be bothered with them at all.
