Show your passion for wildlife and adopt your favorite animal at the Dallas Zoo!  Your support helps provide habitat, lifestyle and environmental enhancements for the animals in our care.  Your gift also supports the addition of animals to our collection and our participation in Species Survival Plans (SSPs), critical to the survival of endangered and threatened species around the world.

Adopt-An-Animal parents get the following benefits:

  • A personalized Adoption Certificate with a color photo of your animal.
  • A Zookeeper's Report, filled with information about your animal.
  • A special invitation to an event at the Dallas Zoo.

All the Parental Pride - None of the Work!

The greatest benefit of all is the enormous satisfaction in helping support the wonderful wildlife at the Dallas Zoo – and it’s so easy!  All the adopted animals remain in the care and custody of the Zoo, and no ownership rights are conferred.  If your adopted animal is removed from the collection, your sponsorship will be applied towards another animal for the remainder of the year.  Due to their popularity, some animals may receive concurrent adoptions.  For more information, please e-mail or call 469.554.7449.
