Adopt an Animal

Lend a loving hand by adopting an animal, such as our Ring-Tailed Lemur and becoming part of our growing Zoo Parent family. After completing your adoption, learn more about our animals at the Zoo here. It turns out they really do like to “Move it! Move it!” Your animal adoption helps to fund the Zoo’s operating budget, which in turn provides funds for animal care, conservation programs, education, and research.

Adopt an animal—It’s fun, easy, and really makes a difference!

Choose one of our five gift categories below and adopt any animal at Oakland Zoo. Donate online or download our form and donate by mail.
