Adopt A Wild Child
Adopt A Wild Child
Join the Kansas City Zoo family and Adopt a Wild Child. Animal adoptions are a unique, fun way to help us feed and care for our more than 1,100 animals.
For less than a dollar a day, you can help add to our naturalistic habitats, purchase toys for animal enrichment, and provide hundreds of pounds of food each day. An annual gift provides food each day for your favorite "wild child." Adopt Now.
Show your favorite animal that you care.
As an adopting individual, family, group, or corporation, you will receive weekly e-news and the quarterly newsletter Expeditions throughout the year, other fun wild perks, and an invitation to the annual adoption picnic. Visit the Kansas City Zoo often—you’ll see your adoption at work!
Your company can make a difference! Corporations have the opportunity to decide which animal to adopt, then chose from multiple levels, each of which comes with public acknowledgement to benefit your company.
