ADOPT Benefits

Ready to adopt?

Get started by choosing an animal.

Enjoy these great benefits when you adopt a Philadelphia Zoo animal.

At the $50 level

  • Certificate of adoption

  • Animal fact sheet

  • Photo of your adopted animals.

  • Admission for one to Adopt Day, including a group tour, cake pops, and special keeper talks. (Additional guests are welcome to join you with the purchase of general Zoo admission.)

At the $150 level

  • All of the benefits above, plus a private meet-and-greet with your adopted animal and its keeper. The private visit lasts 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.

  • One additional guest may accompany the Adopt parent at no cost. Additional guests must purchase an adopt ion package at the $150 level.

At the $450 level

  • All of the benefits above, plus meet-and-greet with two of your animal's neighbors. Do you want to adopt the giraffes at the $450 level? We'll also introduce you to the river hippos and the rhinoceros or the okapi.

At the $1,000 level

  • All of the benefits above, plus a charitable donation of $550 to the overall Zoo's conservation efforts. Your help goes on even further!
