Sponsor an Animal

Be a Friend to Como Zoo’s Animals

Sponsoring an animal  is a unique way to connect with conservation efforts at home and around the world.

Your donations support progressive new habitats like Gorilla Forest and our new Giraffe Feeding Station, and help to pay for best practice animal care at Como, one of the select zoos around the country to achieve the high accreditation standards of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.

Sponsor an animal by filling out the form below or calling 651-487-8229.

Sponsorship packages make great gifts for any occasion. Please allow two weeks for processing and delivery.

Donations received by December 14th will be acknowledged prior to December 25th.

If you are looking to fundraise as a school group or classroom, learn more about our group sponsorship program here.
