Welcome to The Arizona Tortoise Rescue. Our mission is to rehabilitate tortoises as well as to give a forever home to any tortoise in need. Please feel free to contact us if you have a tortoise in need of a home or if you have any questions pertaining to the proper care of your tortoise. To surrender a tortoise in need visit our Rehoming page, to adopt a tortoise in need of a new home visit out Adoptions page.
Picture: This is Lola, one of our many rescues. She was found wandering around the Redwood Forest with a severely pyramided shell and MBD. She has now doubled in weight and size and continues to get new healthy growth on her shell. She is one of the many success stories here at Arizona Tortoise Rescue.
Due to Covid-19 we are currently suspending pickups for tortoises. Unattended drop offs can be scheduled, please request to do so if you have a tortoise in need of a home.
We have several openings at our rescue for tortoises in need. We also have a few up for adoption for those qualified homes. Contact us if you have a tortoise in need of a home or if you are looking to add a rescue to your home. Thank you!
Temperatures are getting cold, be sure your tortoises have a heated shelter. Most people have Sulcatas and think they hibernate, they DO NOT and need heat. Email us if you have any questions on how to house/heat your tortoise.
