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. Thank you!
Why adopt an animal?
As a Zoo Parent, you will have the satisfaction of knowing you are helping the Amarillo Zoo and making a contribution to the welfare of the many animals that live here. Zoo Parent funds are used to provide special animal care, enrichment, special diets, and and exhibit improvements. They also help support important education and conservation programs at 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.). School classes are especially encouraged to become adoptive parents; each child will receive a Zoo Parent wallet card. Group adoptions include wallet cards for up to 35 children.
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.
