Tucson Zoo

Open Daily 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.


Adopt an Animal


Become a “Parent” to your favorite Zoo animal. It’s easy, fun and most importantly, your adoption fee supports the Zoo. Anyone can become a Reid Park Zoo Parent—individuals, families, school groups or classes, service organizations, businesses, or groups of employees.

These adoptions make great gifts too…unique, different, meaningful and fun. Pick the occasion and pick the animal. Your gift will be much appreciated!
