Adopt an Animal

Add a Blank Park Zoo animal to your family today!

Become the proud parent of one of 20 Blank Park Zoo animals by participating in the Adopt an Animal program. By adopting an animal through this program, you not only help in the care and feeding of that animal, but also support important education and conservation programs at the Blank Park Zoo.

Now through the end of June, when you adopt the Hartmann's Mountain Zebra, you will be entered in a drawing for the chance to meet our littlest Zebra, Dakota! In addition, as a special thank you for supporting our newest addition, all Zebra adopts will receive a bonus item, or two, depending on your level of support, while supplies last. All Zebra adopts will receive a Zebra pop socket and $100 and above adoption packages will receive a mini Zebra plush. Supplies are limited so submit your adoption today!
