Looking for a new forever friend? The Arizona Game and Fish Department has 75 baby desert tortoises up for adoption.

AZGFD recommends that before adopting a desert tortoise, potential owners learn as much as possible about desert tortoises and desert ecology.

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