AZGFD recommends that before adopting a desert tortoise, potential owners learn as much as possible about desert tortoises and desert ecology. https://www.azgfd.com/wildlife/nongamemanagement/tortoise/captivecare/

Desert tortoises are available for adoption if you are a permanent resident of Arizona.

If you are ready to become a tortoise pet parent, click here to fill out the application. https://www.azgfd.com/PortalImages/files/wildlife/tortoise/tortoiseAdoptApplication.pdf

The organization also posted a message for any potential adopters, which can be viewed here. https://www.azgfd.com/PortalImages/files/wildlife/tortoise/tortoiseAdoptPacketFORM9082.pdf
