Looking for a unique gift?

An Animal Sponsorship package is a great gift for the animal love in your life!

The deadline to purchase an animal sponsorship package for USPS delivery before Christmas is 12:00 noon on Monday, December 17.
If you’d like to place your order for pick-up at the Minnesota Zoo, this may be accommodated for orders placed between 12:00 noon on Monday, December 17 – end of day Thursday, December 20. Please select “PICK UP AT THE ZOO” in the order options.
If you have questions or would like to place your order over the phone, please call the Minnesota Zoo Foundation at 952-431-9237.

With any animal sponsorship of $55 or more, you or the person you designate will receive a personalized sponsorship certificate, a plush animal (if your chosen animal is not available we will substitute another),  an animal trading card with fun facts, and the satisfaction of supporting the Minnesota Zoo Foundation! At the $100 level, you will also receive a children’s book about animals and/or conservation (selection may vary).  At the $250 level, you will be invited to meet a Zookeeper!

Sponsoring an animal is a unique way to acknowledge special people on special occasions!  We will mail your sponsorship package directly to the recipient for no extra charge (within the continental US only). Please allow up to 10 business days for processing.
