Adopt an Animal - Your Support Matters



Adopt an animal today and help to support vulnerable species at home and abroad.

As a charitable organization, funds raised through the Adopt-an-Animal program directly support the Toronto Zoo’s scientific research and conservation efforts to help save vulnerable wildlife, including (but not limited to) the polar bear, the Blanding’s turtle, and the Puerto Rican crested toad.

Our Adopt-an-Animal packages make the perfect gift to honor a loved one, celebrate a birthday or recognize a job well done!
