ADOPT Benefits

At the $50 level

  • Certificate of adoption, fact sheet and photo of your adopted animals.

  • Admission for one to Adopt Day, held the first Saturday of October and includes a group tour, a cake cutting ceremony and special keeper talks. Additional guests are welcome to join you with the purchase of general Zoo admission.

  • Enrollment in ZooNooz, a monthly e-newsletter of all the latest Zoo happenings.

At the $150 level

  • All of the benefits above plus a private meet and greet with your adopted animal and their Keeper. The private visit is approximately 20 minutes. As you can probably imagine, not all animals are available for personal visits, but if your adopted animal is unable to meet with you, you may choose an alternative species that is able. To schedule your tour, please call 215-243-5673. Your private meet and greet is good for one (1) year from time of purchase.

  • Private meet and greets are based on a 'per person' basis. Additional guests must purchase an adopt at the $150 level.
