When you adopt an animal, your donation helps support the animal’s care and feeding. For a few dollars, you can help energize a South African Cheetah or keep a Bactrian Camel walking tall. Whatever animal you choose, your donations directly support your new family member at Scovill Zoo. View the Zoo Parents List.
