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 and mail it along with your payment to: Wildwood Park Zoological Society, Attn: Animal Adoption, PO Box 523, Marshfield WI, 54449.

There are two levels of adoptions:

$35 level:

  •  4x6 photo of the animal you are adopting

  • Certificate signed by the zookeeper

  • Animal fact sheet

  • Your name will appear on the zoo website as one of our animal adopters

$50 level:

  • Everything from above, plus

  • Metal sign created by Serenity Designs in Marshfield, WI  http://www.serenity-designs-wi.com/
    Metal Sign
    (Sign will feature adopter's name, image of adopted animal, and adoption year.  You will be contacted to pick your sign up when it is completed.  There will be a sign hanging on each animal exhibit similar to the sign that you have purchesed.  In place of your name it will have the adopted animal's name, there will be no year on it, and name plates will be attached to the sign below the "adopt an animal" wording.  The name plate will have the same wording as your metal sign.)
    Any adopt an animal forms that are filled out in October through December will not be attended to until January of the next year. 

Please allow 3-6 weeks to receive your adoption package.

Species available for adoption include: American Bison, American Elk, Arctic Fox, Bald Eagle, Bighorn Sheep, Canada Lynx, Gray Fox, Great Horned Owl, Kodiak Bear, Mountain Lion, Peregrine Falcon, Prairie Dog, Red-tailed Hawk, Rough-legged Hawk, Sandhill Crane, Screech Owl, Timber Wolf, Turkey Vulture, and White-tailed Deer
