Adopt An Animal

Support your favorite CuriOdyssey animal!

Adopt an animal and you will help CuriOdyssey support the animals that call the museum “home.” You can help us provide for the care and feeding of the museum’s wildlife by sponsoring an animal for one year through our Adopt-An-Animal program.

The Adopt-An-Animal program is perfect for many occasions: birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, businesses, school and club fundraising programs, and more.

All of our animals are available for adoption, including animals on exhibit and animals used for educational programs.

Adoptions last one year and are renewable.

Due to their popularity, some animals may be subject to concurrent adoptions.

No ownership rights are transferred.

Some animals available for adoption are Animal Ambassadors, which participate in our public education programs and are not on exhibit at the museum.

Plush animals must be picked up at the CuriOdyssey Shop and are subject to availability. When you adopt an animal online or by mail, you will receive a voucher redeemable for your plush animal on your next visit to CuriOdyssey.
