Play a direct role in promoting the well-being of your favorite residents!?

All animal species are available for adoption!

All adoptions are valid for a one-year period and may be renewed annually. Adopted animals may have multiple adoptive donors and no ownership rights are conferred by adopting an animal. All adopted animals remain in the care and custody of the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, but we hope you will visit often!

The name of each adopter is posted on this page monthly and on the Adopt-An-Animal board located next to the Safari Gift Shop on Zoo grounds. All levels of adoption packages include a personalized adoption certificate, a magnet, monthly Z-mail updates, and an issue of our ZooInsider newsletter.


Please allow 2-3 weeks for your adoption package to arrive.
