Adopt an Animal
Join Our Zoo Family: Adopt an Animal!
What’s your favorite animal at Dickerson Park Zoo? Is it big or small? Covered with feathers or fur? Swim or roam? Join our zoo family through Friends of the Zoo’s ADOPT (Animals Depend On People Too) program. As an animal parent, you help provide the care the animals need. And with more than 500 hungry mouths to feed, the zoo needs all the help it can get with its grocery bill!
Adopting a “wild child” is a special gift, perfect for a child, friend, relative, or a hard-to-buy-for person. Zoo parents may take pride in knowing they are a vital part of DPZ’s mission to protect all wild things.
Animals may be adopted at one of three levels: $25, $50, or $100, and a portion of Adopt donations are tax deductible. (Day pass value = $15 each.)
When you ADOPT an animal for one year, you receive:
- $25: Zoo parent card and sticker
- $50: Zoo parent card, sticker, one (1) one-day pass to Dickerson Park Zoo, a year’s subscription to WildTimes
- $100: Zoo parent card, sticker, two (2) one-day passes to Dickerson Park Zoo, a year’s subscription to WildTimes
Here’s a downloadable and printable adopt and animal form if you prefer to mail.
