Desert Tortoise Rescue

@Joshua Tree


Rescuing, rehabilitating, and adopting
California Desert Tortoises since 1997

We are ONLY taking in California desert tortoises from the southeastern Mojave desert area at this time.  
Please see the "Contact Us" page for additional information about your location and other species.

The Joshua Tree Tortoise Rescue is a local grassroots, non-profit organization permitted by the State of California Department of Fish and Game to rescue and rehabilitate the endangered California Desert Tortoise.

Our mission is dedicated to the survival of the desert tortoise through education and adoption programs, working closely with government and military agencies, schools, community groups and local businesses.
