With our symbolic adoption program, you can become a “Zoo Parent” that contributes directly toward one of the Zoos’ 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!
Every animal at the Virginia Zoo is available for adoption at several donation levels, starting at just $25.
Zoodoptions also make great learning experiences for the classroom! Click here to learn more.
