“Adopt” an Animal

Adopt an animal at Audubon today!

When you adopt an animal at Audubon, your donation goes directly toward animal care. You are helping us buy food and other needed supplies for our in-house live animals.

You are also helping us accomplish our mission of connecting people to nature, since our animals are Audubon Ambassadors in programs and school visits.

Animal adoptions make great souvenirs!  Or give them as gifts for birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, achievements, or any occasion!

Adoption Packages

Adoption packages are available for a donation of $20 and include:

-Personalized adoption certificate!
