The Phoenix Zoo invites you to adopt a carousel animal on our enchanting Lakeside Carousel. This carousel is a masterpiece, featuring 30 meticulously hand-painted animals crafted by skilled artisans. Adopting a Lakeside Carousel animal offers a unique opportunity to honor family and friends, recognize a business, or celebrate a momentous occasion.

Adoption includes a personalized 5” x 8” plaque mounted next to your animal on the carousel, recognition on the Phoenix Zoo’s website for the duration of the dedication, and acknowledgement in our annual report the year the gift is made.

The cost of adoption varies based on the length of dedication, and your gift is fully tax-deductible. Animals are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and prices are subject to change. Please note that payment plans are not available for this program.

All proceeds from the Lakeside Carousel Adoptions benefit the Phoenix Zoo’s conservation efforts.
