Adopt An Animal

Adopt an Animal

Show your passion for wildlife

Pardon us while we “paws” our Adopts program.

We are making improvements to our Adopt An Animal program. Adoptions are temporarily unavailable during this time, but we are looking forward to sharing more in early November.

Please check back then, or reach out to our Individual Giving Manager, Tele Durham, at 469.554.7420 or with any questions.


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.

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