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! 

Other Donations

Donate $5 or more, and you can also have your name listed as a donor on the animal's page on our website.
