You Can Adopt A Desert Tortoise From Arizona Game & Fish This Year
Applications are being accepted until September 1.
Some reptiles need a forever.
captive tortoises can transmit diseases that can decimate our wild population.
Adoptions are available toresidents only, and 2020 applications are still being accepted.
AZGF says that they can live "upwards of 80-100 years," so it's a good idea to have a backup plan because they can outlive their owners.
If you're looking for some companionship, these critters need a little TLC and a place to call!
