Adopt an Animal

Take a Wild Animal into your Heart!

BECOME A PROUD PARENT of any animal at The Living Desert today! Your symbolic adoption helps support The Living Desert’s extraordinary animal care, education and conservation programs. Donations to the Animal Adoption Program provide funds for wildlife education, conservation research, animal care and habitat improvements.

Adoptions make one-of-a kind gifts for birthdays, holidays, graduations and more – the perfect gift for the person who has everything. Give a gift that gives back!

tax-deductible, as allowed by law.

With your help, we can save animals from extinction
