ADOPT an Animal

You can now ADOPT a ZooMontana animal to help provide for its care, enrichment, wildlife education, and habitat improvements!

How would you like to have a Bald Eagle for a Brother? Or, maybe a Grizzly Bear for a Grandpa? You could even have a Canada Lynx as your Cousin! Well, at least you can come close with our ADOPT an Animal program! You can symbolically ADOPT one of your favorite ZooMontana residents to help provide funds for their care and enrichment, wildlife education, and habitat improvements. Did you know that it costs over $30,000 a year just to feed the animals at ZooMontana? That’s more food than your Uncle can eat on his extended visit! You can’t choose your family, but you can choose to ADOPT an animal at ZooMontana today!
