Adopt an Animal

Adopt an animal at Cameron Park Zoo

By adopting an animal at the Cameron Park Zoo, you share your love for animals by helping ours receive the best possible care. With exciting new benefits such as personal meet and greets with animals and their keepers, there has never been a more exciting time to support the Zoo. For just $100.00, you can go where only zookeepers go! Children must be accompanied by an adult. (No children under 6 can be permitted behind the scenes)

Adopting an animal for yourself or as a gift is both rewarding and fun. The Zoo is currently home to over 1,300 animals from around the world, many of which are rare and endangered. Your adoption purchase provides funding for enrichment for these animals as well as conservation efforts that benefit their wild counterparts.

$25 – certificate, animal fact sheet, photo of your adopted animal
$50 – all of the above plus a stuffed animal
$100 – all of the above plus one behind the scenes with your adopted animal (when available) and one of the animal’s keepers (Up to 4 guests)
