Adopt a Vampire bat

Adopt Me!
By adopting a vampire bat, you share your love for animals by helping ours receive the best possible care. With over 2,500 mouths to feed, the Zoo’s annual grocery bill is over $500,000—your adopt purchase helps us buy monkey chow, trout, honey, mealworms, and much more!


With a gift of $50*, you will receive: 
 • An email with a personalized certificate of ADOPTion and species fact sheet.
*The $50 package is only available online. It will only be fulfilled electronically. 


You will notice that “Behind the Scenes” experiences will no longer be included in the ADOPT program. These opportunities and unforgettable memories will continue to be offered by the Philadelphia Zoo, but in a new and exciting way.

In addition, this year’s ADOPT Day, scheduled for Saturday, October 1st, will be the zoo’s last. All Adopters who purchased their ADOPTions between October 1, 2015 and August 1, 2016, will be invited to the final ADOPT Day. We have loved every ADOPT Day we have ever hosted, and we know many of you have attended every one. It is our hope that you will continue to come throughout the year to visit your adopted animals.
