NOTICE TO DONORS:
Due to the "Stay at Home" order issued in the City of St. Louis, only a limited number Zoo staff are working at the Zoo. As such, activation of Zoo Parents Program adoptions may take longer although credit card payments and checks may automatically have been processed. All new and renewing adoptions will include a full year of benefits once the Zoo reopens to the public. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
Become a Zoo Parent at the Saint Louis Zoo. When you adopt an animal, your donation goes towards the animal's care and daily feeding. For a few dollars, you can pick up the tab for an elephant's 100-pounds-a-day hay habit or keep a sea lion swimming pretty with 25 pounds of fish a day.
