The Phoenix Herpetological Society (PHS) will be hosting tortoise adoption workshops this spring and summer for people interested in adopting a desert tortoise.

Those interested in sharing their yards with a tortoise should visit the Arizona Game and Fish Department's (AGFD's) Tortoise Adoption Program website (www.azgfd.gov/tortoise) for more information on feeding, caring for, and creating a habitat for a tortoise. 

The desert tortoise adoption packet, which includes the adoption application, can also be downloaded at this site. 

Once approved, adopters will be able to foster tortoises. They will be registered to attend an adoption workshop to ensure they know the proper care for this state-protected species and pick up their new family member. 

Workshops will be held on Saturday, May 14, and Saturday, June 18, from 8 a.m. to noon.
