A.D.O.P.T. an Animal

Do you have a Brandywine Zoo animal that makes your visit special. Why not adopt it?

When you become an annual sponsor your tax deductible donation to the Delaware Zoological Society is used to help us continue our conservation work at the Zoo and around the world. The Brandywine Zoo participates in many conservation programs promoting the survival of at-risk animals and their habitats. Through your sponsorship, our efforts will continue to support these very important animals.

Anyone can “A.D.O.P.T.” an animal: school groups, scout troops, businesses, civic and service organizations, individuals and families.

Naturally, your adoption is for sponsorship purposes only; your chosen animal remains at the Zoo. Because of their popularity, some animals may be adopted by more than one sponsor. You can become a sponsor for a different animal each year, or your adoption can be renewed as often as you wish. A Zoo animal adoption is a wonderful gift idea!

It’s easy to adopt

Just fill out an adoption form and send it with your payment. If sending a check, make it payable to the Delaware Zoological Society.

If you have any questions regarding the adoption program, please contact the membership office at 302-571-7788 ext. 215 or memberships@brandywinezoo.org and an adoption representative will be happy to assist you.
