When you adopt an animal from the Jacksonville Zoo, you become an Honorary Zookeeper whose donation provides much-needed funding to support the care, housing, and feeding of our animals. In return for your generous support, you’ll receive a personalized Honorary Zookeeper certificate, a color photo, facts about your animal, a plush animal, and more.
There are four ways to adopt an animal from the Jacksonville Zoo and Garden!
We will attempt to match the animal you adopt with the plush animal you receive. However, this is not always possible. If your animal isn’t available, we will substitute as needed.
Note: A portion of your donation is tax-deductible. Shipping is standard via USPS mail. Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens is not responsible for any delays in mail once shipped. Please allow 1-2 weeks for processing. No ownership rights are conferred with a donation to the program.
Show extra love to the ones you care about most, while supporting our conservation efforts!
