Adopt an Animal

Do you have a favorite furry, feathered or scaly friend at the zoo? Adopt it! You can make a very special donation to the zoo by adopting one of our animals for yourself or as a gift to a friend or loved one. Your donation will then go directly to the care and enrichment of the animal you have selected.

Anyone can adopt an animal - individuals, families, school groups, or businesses! We appreciate your patience! Please allow 10 days for the zoo crew to process your adoption request. 

With your adoption you get:

  • An 8" x 10" color adoption certificate
  • A fact sheet about your animal
  • A candid color photo of your newly adopted friend
  • A listing on the Zoo Adoption Honor Roll
