Frequently Asked Questions

 

How quickly will my Adopt package arrive?

Adopt packages usually arrive within 10 business days. Please let us know if you have a rush situation and we will do our best to accommodate you.

 

Is my Adoption a tax-deductible gift?

The $65 Guardian and $125 Protector levels are both fully tax-deductible. The $30 Advocate level does not qualify for a tax deduction but does support the animals you love. 

 

Can you tell me more about the plush animal I will receive?

The plush animals are high-quality 12″ plush. They are great for gift giving! Yes, the plush animal will be the same animal as your Adopt.

 

Does the animal actually belong to me?

Your adoption is symbolic, but it directly supports the care of the animal you adopt. 

 

Will anyone else get to adopt this animal?

Yes. It takes the support of more than one adoption to feed and care for an animal all year. 

 

Can I name my Adopted animal?

All our zoo residents already have names. We will include the animal's name in your adoption package whenever possible. 
 

May I Adopt onsite at the Zoo?

No. All adoptions must be completed online, over the phone or by mail. The package will be shipped to you or the gift recipient. 

 

How long does my adoption last?Each adoption lasts for one year. When your year is up, you may renew your adoption online, over the phone or by mail. Our animal family would love to have your continued support.

 

Who can I contact if I have further questions?
