We’re Open!

After more than 100 days of being closed due to COVID-19, we have finally received the go-ahead to re-open for members on June 29-July 1 and not-yet-members on July 2.

Masks will be required while on-grounds, as well as social distancing measures. Visit UticaZoo.org/prepare for full details.

Utica Zoo Animal Adoptions

Help the Utica Zoo care for our more than 200 animals by symbolically adopting! Your adoption fees help us provide food, vitamins, supplements, enrichment, veterinary care, exhibit upgrades and modifications, or anything else the animals may need. We greatly appreciate your interest in adopting one of our beautiful animals!


In an effort to practice social distancing, we have modified our Animal Adoptions program to be fully digital with our friends at Max’s Student Stores. CLICK HERE to visit our online Animal Adoption store.
