Zoo Parents

Become the proud parent of one of the Amarillo Zoo animals by participating in the Zoo Parent program! By symbolically adopting an animal through this program, you not only aid in the care and feeding of that animal, you also support important improvements and the growth of the Amarillo Zoo!

Who can be a Zoo Parent?

Our animal adoptions make great gifts for your children, family members, friends, co-workers, and employees. Anyone can adopt, including individuals or groups (classes, scout troops, businesses, etc.). 

How long does my Zoo Parent adoption last?

Adoptions run for one year from the date of purchase and can be renewed annually for as long as you wish.
