Zoodoptions

With our symbolic adoption program, you can become a “Zoo Parent”  that contributes directly toward one of our animal’s care and feeding for one year.

Contributions from animal adoptions go directly to the Virginia Zoo Keeper Fund. With your gift, we buy treats, toys, and supplies for the Zoo’s 500+ animals, as well as provide specialized training for their zookeepers.Our adoption packages make perfect gifts for people of all ages!
