Adopt An Animal

Animal Adoptions make great gifts for birthdays, holidays, graduations, celebrations, for the animal lover in your life and just because you care. Adoption gifts also have the added advantage of giving both the gift giver and the recipient the satisfaction of knowing they are helping to provide quality food and the best possible care for all the Aquarium’s animals.

Buy A Brick

The Aquarium would like to offer donors an opportunity to support the facility and at the same time receive tangible recognition for their generosity. For donations of $150 or more, you can leave a lasting impression by purchasing a personalized brick, which will be installed in the Aquarium’s entry pathway or aviary. You may choose to have your name engraved in the brick, have it inscribed in memory or in honor of another individual or use it as an opportunity to leave a personalized message.
