Donate Adopt an Animal

Adopt an Animal Program Has Ended

Thank you for your past support of the Adopt an Animal program. Supporters like you have shown us they are passionate about the Cleveland Zoological Society's mission of connecting people with wildlife. Our ZooParents are valued donors and their gifts have helped the Zoo maintain the highest standards of animal care in Cleveland and conservation work across the globe. 

As of December 31, 2018, our Adopt an Animal program has been discontinued. This decision was difficult to make but necessary in order to maximize the impact of generous donations to the Zoo. 

Annual Giving Options

Beginning in January 2019, we are offering a new way to support the Zoo and animals we all love. 

Through our other annual giving options, your donation will still make an impact on the animals you care about. Beginning in January 2019, you can give in the following ways:

  • Donate to ZooFund, the Cleveland Zoo Society’s annual fund campaign. You can give in honor of someone, or donate as a gift to a loved one.
  • Donate to ZooKeepers Circle to receive admission to the Zoo and the RainForest in addition to events, publications and other incentives.

For Current ZooParents

If you adopted an animal in 2018, your adoption and benefits will continue through your expiration date in 2019.

Thank you for signing up!
