Adopt a Wild Child

Adopt a Wild Child today, and give a gift that matters! It’s a fun and unique way to show you care about your loved ones AND our animals. Or, adopt for yourself and enjoy the benefits of “parenthood”. We’ve got adoption packages to fit every need and budget, starting at less than a dollar a day. Watch for specials throughout the year, or sign up any time to support your favorite from among over 20 species.

Your adoption helps us:

- Maintain habitats

- Transport animals

- Purchase toys for enrichment

- Provide hundreds of pounds of food each day
