Animal Adoption Program
Did you know elephants will eat up to 500 pounds of vegetation a day and drink up to 40 gallons of water at a time? The Zoo Pal program offers a unique way for people to support the Zoo's efforts to enhance animal habitats and maintain the finest animal care possible. Your donation goes directly toward the care of Sedgwick County Zoo animals.

So, if you want to reward yourself or give a unique gift to someone special, just follow your animal instincts. Choose a rhino for retirement. A bear for boss's day. A  bald eagle for a birthday or a jaguar just because! We have 30 animals from which to choose. Become a Zoo Pal today and the Zoo animals will reap the rewards tomorrow!



Customize Your Zoo Pal Package

Zoo Pals come in all sizes and shapes. A Zoo Reach program is a perfect add-on for a school that worked extra-hard fundraising for their Zoo Pal. And a Zoo Pal package makes a great birthday gift at any age.
