Looking for a unique gift?

When you sponsor an animal by making a gift to the Minnesota Zoo Foundation of $100 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 helping the animals at the Minnesota Zoo!

Animal sponsorship help pay for things essential to keeping animals healthy, AND a sponsorship can be a great gift for animal lovers, aspiring veterinarians and zookeepers, children you’d like to introduce to the concept of philanthropy, and care packages to college students.  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.
