Adopt a Goat

Adopting a goat at Paignton Zoo will make a real contribution to the care and general wellbeing of our amazing animals and vital conservation work.

Our adoption packs make a fantastic gift for animal lovers of any age. Prices start from as little as £35 per year, with three different packs to choose from.

You may have spotted our group of pygmy goats that take up residence in our Ranch walkthrough area. These popular characters are named Bowser, Luigi, Mario and Toad – and they love getting attention from our guests!


How do I adopt a goat?

First choose the adoption package that you wish to purchase online from the options below and then go on make your animal selection.

Adoptions apply to the species rather than individual animals. This is because some of our animals may move to other zoos as part of breeding programmes. If your adopted species moves, we will advise you and you will be given the opportunity to transfer your adoption to another species.

Please note that our adoption gift packs are only available for UK delivery.
