Animals Depend on People Too!

You probably have a favorite Brandywine Zoo animal, a hairy, furry or feathered friend who makes your visit to the Zoo special. So 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 at the Zoo: school groups, 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 Parent. You can become a Parent 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 is easy to adopt. Just fill out the application form and send it with your payment. If sending a, check make payable to the Delaware Zoological Society.
