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.
