Our Adopt-an-Animal Program was created so that children, families, schools, classrooms, church groups, scout groups, businesses, or organizations can help to care for and feed our animals. Adopting your "favorite" animal is a great way to help support the zoo! It's also a great way to share your love of animals with others - give an animal adoption as a gift!
There are many animals to choose from under our four adoption levels. Simply choose an adoption level and then select a specific animal to adopt. When you adopt an animal your contribution goes directly toward the care of your adopted animal and you receive the benefits of your adoption level. All adoptions are valid for one year from the date of purchase. Your name will be placed on the Adoption Board at the zoo for one year. Adoption Certificates are personalized. Subscription to the monthly zoo newsletter is valid for one year.

Note: You are adopting a species of animal - not an individual animal. No ownership rights are conferred and animals may be adopted by more than one person. In the event of illness, death, or relocation of animal - your adoption will be transferred to a suitable adoption replacement.
If you wish to purchase an adoption as a gift you MUST choose an adoption level. The species of animal under that level can then be selected by the giver or the recipient. You can choose to have an Adoption Gift Certificate sent directly to you or to the recipient. The Adoption Gift Certificate can then be redeemed to claim the Adoption Packet.
