Help us continue to offer all the things you love about the Zoo! There are many ways to help.


The Brandywine Zoo's A.D.O.P.T. (Animals Depend On People Too) program invites individuals, school groups, businesses, and civic and service organizations to "adopt" a Zoo animal for a year. The "adoption fees" are used to develop animal habitats at the Brandywine Zoo. For more information about the A.D.O.P.T. program, click here.
