Looking for a unique gift for an upcoming wedding, birthday, anniversary or family celebration? Want something distinctive to add to an Easter basket? Searching for a present for the retiree who has everything? Whether given for a special occasion or “just because” your special someone is sure to love becoming a ZooParent.
ZooParents receive great benefits. They are recognized for one year on our ZooParent Board, located on Zoo grounds. We send them a personalized adoption certificate; their package will also include an animal fact sheet and photo specific to the animal adopted. In addition, our active ZooParents are invited an exclusive party at the Zoo in September. We provide those at higher levels of adoption with more benefits.
But most importantly, donations to this program provide enrichment items for animals at your Zoo. Your generosity will provide things like the balls, ropes and treats you see in animal exhibits. These items will allow zoo keepers to offer our animals the physical and mental stimulation they would experience in the wild, while keeping the animals healthy and alert at the Zoo.
Want a listing of animals available for adoption? Visit the Meet the Animals section on our Web site. Still unsure which animal to adopt? Purchase a gift certificate for the lucky recipient and they can redeem it later for their animal of choice. Do you have questions or are you ready to adopt? Print a form from the Web site, call (585) 336-7212, stop at the Zoo’s Front Gate during Zoo hours or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Show someone special how much you care about them AND their favorite animal by giving the unique gift of ZooParent adoption today!
