When you donate to adopt an animal, you’ll help feed and shelter your new friend, provide enrichment activities to keep them engaged, and cover veterinary care to help them stay happy and healthy for one year.


Your tax-deductible gift will make a difference! It costs about $20,000 annually to care for all of Ijams’ animals, who help teach people about the natural world along with Ijams' human staff members. 


Adopt an Animal: $25 Donation
You'll receive an ornament or a magnet featuring your new friend and a card telling their story.


Very Important Parent (VIP) Adoption: $225 Donation
You'll receive the ornament or magnet and card, PLUS an hourlong behind-the-scenes tour to meet your favorite animals!

Shipping is available for an additional fee. If you are adopting an animal as a gift during the 2023 winter holidays, please submit your order no later than Dec. 15. If you'd like to pick up your ornament in person, please make a selection no later than Dec. 22. Thank you!
