Animal Adoptions

Give a Gift that Makes a Difference

Adopting an animal is just one of the many great ways that you can invest in YOUR Louisville Zoo! By gifting an adoption or becoming a symbolic parent of your favorite animal at the Zoo, you help us take a bite out of the over $600,000 we spend annually to feed our amazing animal ambassadors. Your generous support also allows us to purchase more fun and engaging enrichment items for all of our Zoo residents. Thank you!
