Adopt An Animal

You love the animals at the Columbus Zoo, so you always want the best for them. By making a one-time donation to symbolically adopt your favorite animal for yourself or a loved one, you contribute to that animal's health and happiness. 

All adopters receive a photo of the adopted animal, a personalized certificate and a fact sheet. When you become an adopter at the $100 level or more, your name will be added to our online Adopt Donor Recognition page.
