ADOPT AN ANIMAL

ADOPT stands for “Animals Depend On People Too.” By sponsoring an animal, you help feed and care for one of the more than 2,400 animals that call John Ball Zoo home. A portion of your contribution through this program also goes to support wildlife conservation in the Great Lakes region and around the world. Every sponsorship lasts for one year and can be renewed!

Yes! An Animal Sponsorship is a great gift for any occasion. Simply enter the individual’s name in the “name for recognition materials” section when purchasing a sponsorship.

We care for more than 2,200 animals representing more than 200 species. Your contribution helps fund the care and feeding of the animals here at John Ball Zoo, as well as supporting wildlife conservation both in the Great Lakes region and around the world.

Animal sponsorships are available for animals not listed, however, the benefits materials outlined in this page are specific to the listed selection of animals. If you choose to sponsor an animal not listed, you will not be eligible for animal-specific benefits.

Sponsor benefits will be shipped via USPS. Shortly after your payment has been processed, you will receive a confirmation email detailing your shipping information. If any of the shipping details in the email are incorrect, please contact Seth Montague at [email protected] or call 616.336.3309.
