Animal Guardians

Animal Adoptions Bear

One of the most rewarding ways to support the animals at the New York State Zoo at Thompson Park is through our Animal Guardian Program. By participating in this program, you agree to sponsor one of our beloved animals; and in exchange, you receive special access to news and updates on your chosen animal. This program helps the zoo to pay for supplemental, enriching items for the animals. Your donation means that your animal may get a new toy to play with or an extra helping of his/her favorite dessert. Thanks to support from all of our Guardians, the animals at the New York State Zoo at Thompson Park are the happiest animals in Northern New York.

How does your contribution help the animals?

In the past, we have been able to use the money to buy boomer balls, snacks, and more. Currently, all support for our bears is going towards building them their very own bear-friendly playground!

 

All Guardianships are valid for one year and are renewable. "Guardian" does not imply ownership with regard to the Zoo animal. If you have any questions about becoming an Animal Guardian, please call 315-782-6180
