Adopt an Animal

Our Family To Yours…

The Utica Zoo Adopt an Animal Program gives you the opportunity to take care of your favorite Zoo animal!  Choose the animal that you’ve always wanted and know your contribution goes directly towards their care and well-being. As a not for profit organization, the Utica Zoo relies on YOU. Adoption is the perfect way to learn about the Zoo’s animals and is open to individuals, families, schools*, youth groups*, businesses, clubs…anyone! Makes a great gift for any age and occasion too!

Become a MEMBER and visit your chosen animal all year round!

 

Note: If paying with PayPal, please include animal selection and gifting option in the buyer notes.
