Did you know that you can support your favorite animal at Oatland Island Wildlife Center through our Adopt a Wild Friend program? Now, more than ever, our adoption program is essential for our center and 100% of your adoption donation will purchase food, habitat maintenance, enrichment and veterinary medicine for your favorite animal!
Symboically adopting for a friend or a loved one is the perfect gift for the holidays, birthdays and anniversaries. Individuals, companies, school classes and organizations can choose one of our animals to "adopt" for a fee of $30 per animal.
All adoptions will receive a certificate with the animal's picture and a Fact Sheet about your animal.
