Adopt an Animal

Show your passion for wildlife

All the Parental Pride – None of the Work!

Your gift also supports the addition of animals to our collection and our participation in Species Survival Plans (SSPs), critical to the survival of endangered and threatened species around the world.

Choose an Animal

The greatest benefit of all is the enormous satisfaction of helping support the wonderful wildlife at the Dallas Zoo – and it’s so easy! All the adopted animals remain in the care and custody of the Zoo, and no ownership rights are conferred. If your adopted animal is removed from the collection, your sponsorship will be applied towards another animal for the remainder of the year.

Due to their popularity, some animals may receive concurrent adoptions. For more information, please e-mail or call 469.554.7444.

From lions to lemurs, we have tons of options for you to show your support for Dallas Zoo animals!
