More to see. More to zoo.


December is Cheetah Month at the Jacksonville Zoo!

In honor of our 100 year anniversary, Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens is featuring the Cheetah as our adoption special for December. Adopt our Cheetah for yourself or as a gift at the special $75 level, and receive two Zoo admission tickets and a cuddly Cheetah plush with your adoption CarePak!

The animal adoption CarePak includes an Honorary Zookeeper certificate, biofacts and a photo of your adopted animal. All proceeds help in the care, feeding and housing of the animal sponsored, and your donation is tax deductible for one year.

Three ways to order:

  • Order online!
    • You can choose to allow your full donation to go to the care and feeding of the animals. If you choose to opt out of receiving thank-you gifts and to receive only a letter of appreciation, simply type ‘- ZOO’ in the order form after the name of the animal you are adopting. Example: ‘Squirrel Monkey - ZOO.’
  • Download an application and mail or fax it in.

  • Call (904) 757-4463, ext. 145 to place an order.

This donation is tax-deductible and is valid for a period of one year. Shipping is standard, USPS mail.  Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens is not responsible for any delays in mail once shipped. Please allow 2-3 weeks for processing. No ownership rights are conferred with a donation to the program.
