Adopt An Animal

The Potawatomi Zoo is home to many animals from around the world. You can help us provide care and feeding for these animals by adopting one through our adoption program. When you make a donation to the Potawatomi Zoo Adopt-an-Animal Program, you help us care for your adopted animal and you support important education and conservation programs at the Potawatomi Zoo.

Just think how much a friend or family member will appreciate a gift of an adoption. It's guaranteed to be the most unique gift of the year. It is also completely tax deductible! Big or small, the Potawatomi Zoo has the perfect addition to your family tree.
