Animal Adoption

Haven't you always wanted to adopt a monkey? What about a giraffe? Ever thought about adopting a zebra? What about a lion or perhaps a chimp? They are just like having kids; just a little hairier. There is nothing better than becoming an adoptive Montgomery Zoo parent.

Becoming an adoptive Zoo animal parent can be one of the greatest and rewarding experiences -- and you don't even have to hire a babysitter.* Adoptions aid in the care, conservation and well-being of the Montgomery Zoo animals, as well as, make a great gift for any occasion. Graduation, birthday, holidays, wedding... or just something special for that person in your life that has everything -- there is a perfect match for everyone.

Share a zoo animal?

Sure. School classes, church groups, companies, civic clubs, etc., can collectively adopt and share the responsibility of one of our Zoo animals. One stewardship package will be presented to the club, class or organization at the time of adoption. As an adoption steward, you and your organization are supporting the further development and conservation efforts of the Montgomery Zoo in the name of your chosen animal and stewardship level.
