Zoodopting one of the animals is an exciting way to show your support of our growing Zoo. Zoo animals are special. They are often the only animals people have a chance to experience on a personal level. Not even the best nature video can replace the excitement of gazing into the eyes of a living tiger or watching a child’s fingers caressing the soft fur of a rabbit.
The animal Zoodoption program helps to support the animal collection at the Zoo. Donations made through the Zoodoption program are used to help provide food and care for our animals. Each animal at the Zoo can be Zoodopted by more than one person or family. Zoodoptions can also be made as a gift for another person with their name on the certificate. The certificate is good for one year from the date of the Zoodoption.
