Show your support for the Greenville Zoo by becoming a wild parent to one of the animals participating in the Adopt-an-Animal Program.

As a zoo parent, you will have the satisfaction of knowing you are helping the Greenville Zoo and making a contribution to the welfare of the many animals that live here. Adopt-an-Animal funds are used for special animal care, enrichment, special diets, minor exhibit improvements and zookeeper training. They also help support important education and conservation programs at the Greenville Zoo.

We have many animals to choose from and adoptions begin at $25. In return for your donation, we will send you (or your gift recipient) the adoption package that accompanies that particular gift level.
