Support Oakland Zoo's animal care, conservation work, and education programs by symbolically adopting our animals. You can adopt an animal in your own name, or you can dedicate the adoption to a loved one.
Choose one of the four adoption packages below, pick an animal, and let us know whether the adoption is for you or a gift for someone else.
Please note that we only accept orders via this webstore and that we do not ship internationally. Most packages ship within two weeks.
