Adopt an Animal at Wildwood Zoo

Why adopt one of our zoo animals? There are several reasons! By adopting one of the zoo animals you are helping provide for that animal’s needs. You are also able to create a unique bond with the zoo while helping the animals living there. In addition, it makes a unique gift that you can give to family members, colleagues, bosses, neighbors, friends, and teachers. Your gift is also tax deductible since the zoological society is a not-for-profit organization. Proceeds help the Zoological Society to purchase new animals, put on educational programs at the zoo as well as provide for other animal needs. All of the zoo animals are available for zoo adoption.

To adopt a zoo animal please fill out our Animal Adoption Donation Form (updated form will be available soon!)  and mail it along with your payment to: Wildwood Park Zoological Society, Attn: Animal Adoption, PO Box 523, Marshfield WI, 54449.
