Why A.D.O.P.T.* an animal?
*Animals Depend On People, Too
It's a personal way to help the Los Angeles Zoo's wildlife conservation efforts and a fun way to create a special bond at the Zoo! All animals in the Zoo's collection are available to ADOPT!
Help Save Endangered Species When You ADOPT at the L.A. Zoo
Funds from the ADOPT program help the Zoo participate in more than 40 international conservation programs that help endangered species.
Animal adoptions make great gifts for family and friends! Recipients receive a personalized adoption certificate and unique animal fact sheet with a photo of their animal ambassador.
One-of-a-kind benefits are available at various levels, including a customized, docent-led Zoo cart tour.
