Adopt an animal
An animal adoption is a unique gift that helps conservation too!
Paignton Zoo has an annual food bill of £300,000 per year and its weekly shopping list includes 800 lettuces, 20 crates of bread and hay by the tonne. Veterinary care, heating costs and cleaning all help to make the care of our animals a very expensive activity.
Our adoptions start from as little as £35 to adopt ANY of our animals for 12 months.
There are threeoptions to choose from; an Animal Adoption Pack, an Animal Gift Box or an exclusive Glass Animal Gift Box (available for a limited time only).
