Adopt an Animal

When you join the Adopt an Animal program, you help provide food, veterinary care and enrichment to the hundreds of creatures that live at Maymont, from massive bison to tiny seahorses. Plus you’re helping us offer environmental and animal-related education to thousands of children who visit during school field trips, public programs, summer camps and outings with family and friends.

Who Will You Adopt?

The Maymont animal family includes injured and orphaned wildlife, friendly farm animals, aquatic species native to the James River, and even animal ambassadors like Rex, the king snake, who help our educators teach project-based learning and SOL classes. The animals’ well-being relies on a healthy diet, regular veterinary care, enrichment activities and habitat maintenance at an annual cost of $500,000. Animals can be symbolically adopted at any level, starting at $25. For more information, email us or call 804-358-7166, ext. 330.
