Adopt an Animal

Adopt a Zoo Resident, Make a Global Impact
Many of Sunset Zoo's animal residents are facing serious threats in the wild. If something does not change, Zoo favorites like tigers, cheetahs or gibbons could be lost forever.

Exhibiting these animals is important to their conservation; it gives you the chance to connect to these rare and graceful creatures with the hope you'll join us in our efforts. It also preserves these endangered animals in a safe environment, with the highest level of care, until the threats they face are eliminated in the wild.

Your adoption of a Sunset Zoo animal resident contributes to the daily care, veterinary visits and habitat upkeep of your adopted wild child, and ultimately supports their preservation for future generations.
