Animal Adoptions


For $75 you can symbolically adopt an animal to support the care and feeding of the animals in our Aquarium and Museum. Our adoption packs make great gifts! You can choose to adopt a Spring Peeper, Barn Owl, American Lobster, Eastern Milk Snake, or a Painted Turtle. Adoption packs include a cuddly animal, adoption certificate, animal fact sheets, and much more. Call (508) 228-9198 today to order yours!
