Club Care Animal Adoptions

Adopting an animal provides a special way for you to be a part of Cosley Zoo and our mission.

The Cosley Zoo animal adoption program invites supporters to sponsor the care of one of the zoo’s animals. Donors will receive an adorable plush animal, an adoption certificate, an animal information sheet, and a photo of the animal. Adoptions last one year and are renewable.

Special Adoption Package: $65*

The special adoption package includes:

  • Plush animal
  • Adoption certificate
  • Animal information sheet
  • Photo (4″ x 6″)

Each year, the zoo’s grocery bill alone amounts to more than $30,000. By purchasing one of our Club Care Animal Adoption packages, you will help defray the costs of feeding and caring for more than 200 animals.

*Plus $9.99 shipping & handling if the adoption is processed online.
