The ADOPT (Animals Depend On People, Too) program offers animal lovers the opportunity to help the Los Angeles Zoo’s wildlife conservation efforts and create a special bond with the animals. All animals in the Zoo’s collection are available to ADOPT. Funds from the ADOPT program help the Zoo participate in more than 40 international conservation programs that help endangered species.

This year’s holiday ADOPT package once again honors our favorite quartet of reindeer – Noel, Belle, Velvet and Jingle, as well as celebrating the recent births of our adorable snow leopard cubs, born in May 2017. Priced at $60.00, this package includes a personalized ADOPT certificate, a photo-factsheet of your adopted animal, an ADOPT window decal, and your choice of a 10-inch Reindeer or Snow Leopard plush animal.

Any animal in the LA Zoo is available for ADOPTion, and all gifts are fully tax-deductible! ADOPT proceeds go to the over 40 international conservation projects in which the LA Zoo participates, helping to save rare and endangered species from extinction.

Call 323/644-6035 with any questions, or to place an order over the phone.

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.

Animal-a-Month Package

The ADOPT program is excited to debut an exclusive gift for wildlife enthusiasts in which the recipient becomes an ADOPTive parent to a different Los Angeles Zoo animal each month for an entire year. The tax deductible gift package begins with a unique “photo album” designed to hold the year’s collection of animal factsheets and adoption certificates, and continues each with the arrival of the photo factsheet and personalized certificate matching that month’s animal.

Any animal in the zoo is available for ADOPTion, although currently heading the “popularity” list are elephants, koalas, tigers, giraffes, gorillas, giant otters, meerkats, snow leopards, hippos, jaguars, Komodo dragons and California condors.

This special gift package is available for $350.00 per year, with a six month plan offered for $175.00.
