Why Adopt an animal?
This program helps support our daily care at Peoria Zoo.
Every animal receives:


  • Expert care from keepers who oversee their daily lives.
  • Specially formulated diets to meet diverse nutritional needs.

  • Regular veterinary checkups to ensure they are in tip-top shape.

  • Enrichment that prompts mental and physical stimulation and encourages the animals to exhibit the same behaviors they would in the wild.

Call (309)681-3500  or  e-mail  [email protected]

Please note, adoption material can take up to 10 business days to process from date payment is received.

Every Adoption Includes


  •   Personalized Certificate
  •   Animal Photo
  •   Animal Fact Sheet

Additional levels include animal gift, Zoo admission, animal meet and greet and more! Also learn about our new school adopt for your classroom of choice!
