Baby Animal Adoption Packages

Baby Animal Adoption Packages

Home to nearly 7,000 exotic animals that represent more than 500 species, the Fort Worth Zoo spends more than $1 million a year feeding all of its wild residents. That’s why we need your help! You can “adopt” one of the Zoo’s animals to contribute to its care and feeding for one full year.

Adopt one of the baby elephant calves, Belle or Bowie (or both!), the Zoo’s youngest giraffe calves or the baby gorilla, Gus. You can play a part in caring for these babies as they grow, by symbolically adopting one (or all) of the baby animals.

The $40 adoption package includes:

  • One plush animal
  • Color photo of chosen animal
  • Personalized adoption certificate
  • Animal fact sheet
  • Zoo publication
  • Animal carrier box
