Adopt an Animal

You can make a special donation to the Zoo by adopting one of our animals for yourself or as a gift to a friend or loved one (unfortunately, you can’t take them home!). Your donation will then go directly to the care of the specific animal you have selected. It is perfect for school groups or civic organizations!
