Adopt an Animal
Animal care is expensive! Every year, the Henson Robinson Zoo spends over $60,000 on animal food, over $65,000 on vet care, and yet more on enclosure repairs and enrichment. When you symbolically adopt an animal, you directly help us care for that animal and support our conservation and education programs to ensure that the species continues to survive in the wild, as well!
Donate $5 or more, and you can also have your name listed as a donor on the animal's page on our website.

All Henson Robinson Zoo animals are adoptable. However, only the listed animals have plush toys to match. If you prefer to adopt a different animal at the Animal Parent level or above, you can choose from any of our available plus toys.
