Adopt an Animal

Become a Zoo Parent at the Saint Louis Zoo. When you adopt an animal, your donation goes toward the animals' care and daily feeding. For a few dollars, you can pick up the tab for an elephant's 100-pounds-a-day hay habit or keep a sea lion swimming pretty with 25 pounds of fish a day.

There are three ways to purchase an adoption package as a gift or for yourself:

  • Visit a Welcome Desk at the North or South Entrance
