The Detroit Zoological Society’s A.D.O.P.T.S. program provides an opportunity for you to support endangered species around the world and our mission of Celebrating and Saving Wildlife while offering a gift that keeps on giving!

Your symbolic animal adoption will support the conservation of animals at the Detroit Zoo as well as endangered species around the world. Your support will also help provide the best in animal and veterinary care for the more than 2,500 animals representing 280 species that call your Detroit Zoo home.

Your wild gift includes a card wishing Happy Birthday, Congratulations or Thank You to a family member, friend or business associate. They will love their special gift, and you can give twice - to your recipient and to the animals at the Detroit Zoo.

This is also a great philanthropy program for schools!

Is your class learning about wildlife, endangered animals, geography or the environment? Does your school have an animal mascot that is also a Detroit Zoo animal? If so yes, consider raising awareness by fundraising for an A.D.O.P.T.S.

Each A.D.O.P.T.S. includes a certificate of symbolic adoption, fact sheet, animal photo, and an optional greeting card that can be used to acknowledge your thoughtful gift.
