Adopt an Animal

Ready to adopt?

Get started by choosing an animal.

By adopting a Philadelphia Zoo animal, you share your love for animals by helping ours receive the best possible care. With over 1,300 mouths to feed, the Zoo’s annual grocery bill is over $500,000—your adopt purchase helps us buy monkey chow, mealworms, and much more!

All Adopt packages include:

  • An invitation to our annual Adopt Day celebration
  • A photo and fact sheet of your animal
  • A certificate of your adoption

Adoption packages start at $50, and for $150, you can go behind the scenes with a zookeeper!
