Please note the processing time for the Adopt-an-Animal package can be 10 to 14 days. Any animals that are not listed can be adopted but the stuffed animal, photo and/or fact sheet may not be available. For more information please call 205.909.4480 or email

There is a $10 shipping charge per plush ($50 packages and higher). We also offer a FREE PLUSH PICKUP option. With this option, you will receive a coupon in the mail for your plush animal, which can be redeemed in the Birmingham Zoo Gift Shop on your next visit.

Show Your Team Pride!

Every animal at the Birmingham Zoo has very specific needs. Help us meet those needs while celebrating your favorite team and supporting your favorite mascot* by adopting one of our animals below. Animal adoptions make great gifts too!

*Although the Birmingham Zoo does not currently have a tiger, we want to show our support for those teams with tiger mascots.
