Adopt Me! 


Your symbolic animal adoption will help care for the more than 15,000 animals (including mammals, fish, birds, invertebrates, amphibians, reptiles, and insects) in Audubon's care. Because of your generosity, Audubon's animals enjoy the highest quality care, world-class exhibits and stimulating enrichment activities.

Adoptions are symbolic. All adoptable animals may have many adoptive parents and all adopt animals must remain in their Audubon homes.
