    Desert Tortoises + Sulcatas: Free to capable and responsible owners

    Hi, we live in Slab City, California. We took on two Desert Tortoises a while back as a "mated pair". We quickly separated the male from the female but it was too late and she had babies. She then had babies again the next year. Hopefully after this year it'll slow down/stop. As a result, we...

    Orange County, emergency adoption of Desert Tortoise

    It seems the person has dropped off of Reddit. I’ve been told by the other person that was offering to take the tort that the original poster is now giving the tort to their dad possibly... unfortunately I don’t know any more than that. I hope that it ends up in a safe home.

    Orange County, emergency adoption of Desert Tortoise

    Welp... I’ve continued to keep watch on the original post and also had a private chat going with the poster, but now their account seems to have been deleted. I’m hoping it got figured out. There was another person talking with them on Reddit, I’ll try messaging them to see if they were able to...

    Ok they posted a link to an image of the tortoise in question. It’s not super close up but hopefully enough to help. *This is the link to the picture*

    Orange County, emergency adoption of Desert Tortoise

    I’m calm :) The tortoise club in this area is too overloaded and can’t take on more. They have already informed me of that recently and sent me to this forum to find homes for my own tortoises. There is a desert tortoise sanctuary near Joshua tree but I’m not 100% on the species yet. I’ll...

    I’m not sure they can help, I was sent to this forum by them because they told me they aren’t able to take in any more tortoises and to try people on this forum.

    You pretty much nailed it! It’s a squatters/homeless camp on a decommissioned military base in the Southern California desert that has been occupied by hippies, hobos, junkies, mentally ill and criminals since the early 60s. There’s a lot of history and nuances to the place and you’d be best...

    We had been coming out here for the winters for a few years before settling in. We’ve now done 3 consecutive summers which is the standard unit of measurement. We didn’t show up with the torts though. We took in a male duck who was being beat up by another male duck, then some chickens, then...

    Here’s our three grown ups. We also have some babies here. The big male Sulcata is 18 and we just took him in. We’re actually hoping to just foster him until we can find a permanent home. The other two are Desert Tortoises that are about 20 and 30 years old.
