Adopt an Animal Program

You can help support Ohio Nature Education's mission to educate about the wonders of our natural world by adopting one of our education animals through our Adopt-an-Animal program.  Your adoption fees help us feed and care for these animals.

We created this program in an effort to provide people with a special opportunity to sponsor and develop a relationship with ONE's education animals.  And, coincidentally, our Adopt-an-Animal program helps greatly with the costs of feeding our resident ambassadors.  The expenses involved in maintaining healthy, well-adjusted education animals are not insignificant.

Adoption Plans

Reward yourself and help ONE by adopting one of our education ambassadors.  You will gain a special wild friend while lending support for your adopted animal's care and feeding.  Adoptions make an excellent gift and are good for one full year.  What better way to say, "I care about Ohio Nature Education's important work!"  We offer five different adoption levels for anyone to help support Ohio Nature Education and its animals,

  • Level 1 ($40) - Includes a background sheet about your adopted animal, a certificate of adoption, a matted 5x7 print, and an invitation to meet your adopted animal "in person" at ONE's annual sponsors event
  • Level 2 ($50) - Includes all of the above and you will also receive a flash drive with wallpaper photos of ONE's animals for your computer
  • Level 3 ($100) - Includes all of the above (photo is upgraded to 8x10), and a set of note cards
  • Level 4 ($175) - Includes all level 3 items and an invitation to attend one of our wildlife photography shoots
  • Level 5 ($350) - Includes all level 3 items, plus a free one-hour program featuring your adopted animal (some animals excluded)

How to Adopt

Animals may be adopted online via PayPal, or by printing and mailing our adoption form along with a check made payable to Ohio Nature Education.  If you have questions or difficulties, you may also contact us at 740.967.8320 or e-mail Mrs. Van for assistance.
