Adopt a Tiger

Adopting a tiger at Paignton Zoo will make a real contribution to the care of our big cats and wildlife conservation work across the world.

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.

We’re home to two young female Sumatran tigers, sisters Carrie and Padme. The pair joined Paignton Zoo from Ree Park Safari in Denmark, in December 2020.

This subspecies, the smallest of all the tiger species, is listed as Critically Endangered, with as few as 400 individuals reported to be living in the wild today. Captive and wild populations in Sumatra are protected and managed, to ensure this stunning big cat is preserved for many generations to come


How do I adopt a tiger?

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.
