Adopt an Animal

Show your support for the wonderful animals and conservation programs at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium through the Adopt Program. Each adoption benefits the Zoo’s animal enrichment program and longstanding conservation partners – all while deepening your connection to your Zoo.

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.
