Adopt me

Adopt me

Become a foster parent to your favourite animal. Not only will you have a new family member, but you will be lending us support whilst receiving some wonderful gifts and benefits. Join those helping to pay back our enormous debt to Mother Nature. It is as simple as simple can be - just fill in the form here.

Who can help

Everyone listed below can become a foster parent

Individuals or groups

(maybe your family, classmates, hobby club members, etc.)

  • Adopting an animal can cost as little as CZK 500 per year. Of course, there is no need to give the entire amount determined for the creature you choose. Every little helps! We can make the most of anything you can afford, even amounts smaller than CZK 500. Just send your donations via text messages.


  • Adopting an animal can cost from CZK 5,000 per year. Apart from the good feeling you will get, there are also tax benefits to be had from doing so.

One tip: If your company is interested in assisting us, then it might be worth considering other means than adopting an animal. Please, check out the zoo partnership menu or other options.

How we use your money

We use contributions to purchase food for adopted animals. The yearly costs outlined in the list below show how much an animal consumes per year.

Not everyone can afford to donate the full amount required to cover the yearly feeding costs of creatures. For example, an elephant will munch its way through CZK 150,000 of food a year. Therefore, every animal can have more than one foster parent. Naturally, the choice of your new family member is completely up to you. Should you wish to be the sole foster parent of an animal, you are more than welcome to donate an amount sufficient to provide feed for an entire year.

Acquire a new family member for your friends

Animal adoption can be a great gift and a lovely surprise for your relatives and friends. Why not buy them a hairy, feathered or even scaly son or daughter? We will be happy to issue a certificate with the donator's name and send it to them along with other gifts. The happy animal will then be waiting at the zoo for its new parent whenever they want to visit.

We will make every effort to process an adoption within 10 days once the zoo's account has been credited. If the adoption is intended as a gift, please make sure your application is sent in good time. Adoptions as Christmas presents must be applied for prior to 30 November. Those received after this date will be dealt with in the New Year.

Besides a warm feeling inside and a new family member, there are also some freebees given away by the zoo. Wondering what they are? Then take a look below.
