Happy HOWL-idays!

Need a grrrrreat gift idea? Adopt a Mexican gray wolf for your someone special this holiday.

Our pack of sisters - Mitzi, Sarita, Nancita and Catori - have been at the Zoo since January of 2009. There are five subspecies of gray wolf, but the Mexican subspecies is noted for being the rarest and most genetically distinct.

When you adopt a Mexican gray wolf you'll be providing the best possible care for them and all the other animals that call Cleveland Metroparks Zoo "home."

The order date for holiday delivery has passed. Please be aware that we are making every effort to process orders, but your package may arrive after the holidays. If you have questions about your order please call (216) 661.6500, x4440.
