An Adopter Event is done once a year, often in the summer. As an adoptive parent you will receive notice when the event is approaching.
 
The recognition plaque is updated once a year in April. This update includes last year’s purchases up until March 31st of the current year. Ex: adopt purchased in June 2015, appears on plaque in April 2016.

Looking to contribute at a higher level? If you would like to adopt an animal for more than $500, please contact the Zoo A.D.O.P.T. Adviser at 801-584-1741 or adopt@hoglezoo.org  for a package tailored especially for you.

Don’t see the animal you love? Don’t worry! All of Hogle Zoo’s animals are available for adoption. If you would like to care for an animal not on our list, let us know and we can make your adoption possible. 

If your animal is not available in plush form, we will substitute it for an adorable African elephant plush animal.

 

All “adoptions” are valid for one full year and are non-transferable. Animals are living creatures and will remain on zoo grounds, in the care of animal experts. They may become ill or die, or they may be transferred to another zoo. If your animal leaves our Zoo, your “adoption” will be transferred to another animal. Due to the popularity of some species, some animals may have more than one adopter.
