So you have a tortoise that needs a new home!

Here are some options:

    • When they Register the new tortoise, Request a Specialist so we can contact them!
    • Tortoise Group helps new custodians with their tortoises! Desert tortoises of all ages must live outdoors.
  • Use the Rehome Form to post your tortoise online
    • This free service posts your contact information online so the public can contact you directly.
    • It is illegal for you to take money for desert tortoises. The new Custodian MUST Register their tortoise!
  • Put your tortoise on a list to be Rehomed
    • When a new habitat is ready, Tortoise Group will health check and Rehome your tortoise. The Rehoming fee is $25 for members and $40 for non-members.
    • Tortoise Group Life Members and Members receive preference. Tortoise Group cannot guarantee all tortoises will be Rehomed.
    • Qualifications for Tortoise Group to Rehome your pet are subject to change. Only healthy tortoises are Rehomed by Tortoise Group.
