A: Depending on your location we can have one of our volunteers drive to you to pick up the tortoise. It is not required but we do ask that if it is within your means to provide a donation so we can help compensate our volunteers for their time and gas money.
A: This varies for each tortoise and where the tortoise is coming from so email me for specifics. I will provide step-by-step instructions and even book the shipment for you.
A: This too varies for each circumstance, email me for specifics. All tortoises are to be shipped via priority overnight shipping, this is not cheap but it is safe and effective at transporting tortoises long distances in a short time.
A: This is entirely up to you. We provide two options: re-homing and forever home. Please refer to our Rehoming page for more details.
A: Donations are always very greatly needed and appreciated! Everything helps and makes it possible so we can continue to take in and care for these awesome creatures! You can donate to the Arizona Tortoise Rescue by clicking the Donate button on the Donations page or you can do so by contacting us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
A: Please refer to the Rehoming page for details. If you choose for us to provide your tortoise with a forever home we are more than happy to provide pictures and updates of your tortoise.
A: Adoption fees are $50 to qualified homes ONLY. Please keep in mind raising tortoises requires time and money. Lighting and other materials necessary to raise a healthy tortoises are not cheap. Please be prepared for these expenses.
A: This is a question that can take days to answer and will differ for each species and situation. Contact me and include what species you have, the size/age of the tortoise, and how you are currently caring for and housing your tortoise and I would be more than happy to answer your questions.
A: We do not allow visitations or tours at our rescue. We are fortunate to have people that let us lease land on their private property so to ensure their privacy and maintain secure locations for the tortoises to live in a safe environment we like to keep our locations discreet. We are more than happy to provide pictures and updates though!
