Adopt an Animal

All animal adoptions purchased before the closure of the zoo will have their plaque expiration dates extended by 3 months.

Our Adopt-An-Animal program has changed, now with three exciting adoption levels! Please read below to find out what is included.

Add a member of our family to yours today! Become a part of our wonderful and wild zoo family.  As a zoo parent, you will have the satisfaction of knowing you’re helping Zoo Boise and making a contribution to the welfare of the many animals that call Zoo Boise home. Administered by the Friends of Zoo Boise, Adopt-an Animal-funds are used to provide special animal care, enrichment, special diets, minor exhibit improvements, and zoo keeper training.
