Malayan Tiger 'Kumar' 007 Birmingham Zoo 8-6-14 (800x559)Take a Wild Animal into your Heart!

Become the proud parent of an animal at the Birmingham Zoo today! When you adopt an animal, you help with the care and feeding of that animal while supporting education and conservation programs at the Birmingham Zoo. Every animal at the Zoo has very specific needs. You can help meet these needs with an adoption.

Adopt for yourself, a relative or a friend. An animal adoption makes a one-of-a-kind present for birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, holidays or special occasions. Commemorate any special occasion with the gift that supports the future of wildlife. Remember, all adoption contributions are tax-deductible.

Individuals, families, businesses, schools, troops, clubs, teams, groups – anyone can take a wild animal into their heart!


Roll Tide! Adopt a Champion.
