Animal Adoption

Want to add a new animal to your family, but don’t have the time or space to care for it? Think about symbolically adopting an animal! When you symbolically adopt an animal, we do all the work of caring for our animals while your support allows us to continue providing the best possible care. Our “animal adoption” program is a great way to support the Museum — all funds go directly to the care of our animals.
