ADOPT an Animal

Father's Day ADOPT an animal certificate and brochure

Animal adoptions make great gifts for family and friends! The ADOPT (Animals Depend On People, Too) program offers animal lovers the opportunity to take a lead role in the Los Angeles Zoo’s wildlife conservation efforts and create a special bond with the animals. All animals at the Zoo are available to ADOPT. Funds from the ADOPT program benefit the welfare of the animals that call the Los Angeles Zoo home, ensuring that they are enriched and thrive here.
