Adopt 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 can be purchased for as little as $50, and for $150, you can go behind the scenes with a zookeeper!
