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 the Zoo’s youngest giraffe calf, Lucchese, or the youngest 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 $50 adoption package includes:

  • One plush animal
  • Personalized adoption certificate
  • Animal fact sheet
  • Animal coloring kit
  • Animal carrier box


Please note: USPS is affected during this time and we cannot guarantee delivery dates.
