The Arizona Game and Fish Department is hoping to get dozens of tortoises into new homes.
It's illegal to remove a desert tortoise from the wild, however, there is a surplus of captive tortoises in the state right now.
If you're interested in adopting, there are some things to consider first -- like how they can live up to 100 years.
Before you make a decision, check the Game and Fish website to make sure you have the proper shelter and resources . The website also offers an adoption application.
Arizona Game and Fish officials say the tortoises do best with some room to roam and a burrow habitat.
Tortoise adoption is free.
