Adopt An Animal

Why ADOPT an animal?

It’s a wild way to support the animals you care most about at the Maryland Zoo. 100% of proceeds from each adoption package support animal care, education programs and wildlife conservation for endangered and threatened species. As an animal adopter, you play an important role in supporting The Maryland Zoo and its mission of preserving wildlife and wild places.

SPECIAL HOLIDAY ADOPTION UPDATE: Limited Edition Penguin Print Holiday Adoptions are now sold out. Holiday plush and passes adoptions are available for the animals below. Purchase by December 19, 2016, to guarantee delivery by Christmas.

plushfooter2016 Is your adoption a gift?

Adoptions make great gifts for every animal lover. Simply select the ‘gift’ option at checkout and complete the online forms to let us know who will be receiving your animal adoption package.


All donations raised through animal adoptions go directly toward the cost of caring for the animal you adopt. Currently, the Zoo is featuring the adoption packages shown above, but all Maryland Zoo animals are available for adoption. With the choice of any other Zoo resident, you will receive an official adoption certificate, picture of your animal and thank you letter from the Zoo. (Please note: we do not have plushes for any animals other than those currently listed above).

If you wish to adopt an animal from The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore that you do not see listed above email membership@marylandzoo.org, and an adoption representative will be happy to assist you.
