The Adopt An Animal program lets you play an important part in promoting the comfort and growth of your favorite Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium residents. Like humans, animals have unique and constantly-changing needs.
When you adopt, your gift helps provide for the care, feeding, and enrichment of Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium animals. Also, your Adopt-an-Animal donation supports the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium's continuing commitment to wildlife conservation, both here in Pennsylvania and around the world.
Benefits of Adoption:
Your name will be posted on the Adopt An Animal Board* on Zoo grounds. Plus, you will receive:
- Personalized adoption certificate
- Adopt An Animal magnet
- Adopt An Animal activity page
- Zoo Insider newsletter
- Photo fact sheet (Featured Creatures only)
All are tokens of gratitude on behalf of all the animals at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium. For a complete list levels of giving and benefits, click here.
- All adoptions are valid for a one-year period and may be renewed annually.
- All adopted animals may have multiple adoptive parents.
- No ownership rights are conferred by adopting an animal. All adopted animals remain in the care and custody of the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium--but we hope you will visit often!
- Please allow 2-3 weeks for your adoption package to arrive.
*The AAA Board is located next to the Safari Gift shop, and is updated each spring.
