Adopt an Animal - Your Support Matters

Due to technical difficulties, online Adopt an Animal purchases cannot be processed at this time. We are working diligently to resolve this issue as soon as possible. During this time, if you wish to place an Adopt an Animal order, please call us at 416-392-9114 (Monday to Friday from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM). We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.



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!
