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.

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 month with the arrival of the photo factsheet and personalized certificate featuring 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.
