Lee Richardson Zoo strives to provide the highest quality care for our animal residents. When you adopt one of them, your gift directly supports efforts to enhance animal habitats and improve the quality of life for our animal ambassadors. Below you will find each class of animal at the zoo.  Click on the photos to be directed to a list of current zoo animals and more information about each. Once you find the animal you would like to adopt, simply return to this page and click "Adopt" to be redirected to the shopping cart.

Your family, friends, company or school can adopt an animal at the zoo while avoiding the demands of pet ownership - including shredded furniture and a refrigerator invasion of worms and fish. As a zoo parent, you don't have to worry about taking your African lion in for shots. We'll take care of that.

All adoptions are valid for one year. Please remember, like all living creatures, zoo animals may become ill, pass away or be transferred to another zoo. No ownership rights are conferred by this “adoption.”
