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.

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.
