Adopt an animal at KNC

Adopt an Animal at the Kalamazoo Nature Center

Adopting an animal is an exciting way to support KNC's animal care and learn more about these amazing animals. Due to closures related to COVID19, our processing of animal adoptions will be delayed beyond our usual timeframes. Thank you for your patience and your support of the Kalamazoo Nature Center.  

Your adoption:
• helps to provide care for an animal at KNC
• gives an unreleasable animal a permanent home (they will live and be cared for here at KNC)
• supports educational programming

Your adoption is good for an entire year from purchase and is renewable!

Meet & Greet with your Adopted Animal: In Person or Virtual Meet & Greet now available!

For an additional $15, you can meet your adopted animal with a trained educator ready to answer your questions. These one-on-one, 15 minute meet & greets take place Saturdays from 10 am - 4 pm OR virtually via Google Meet or Zoom if you would prefer a virtual option.  During the meet and greets, birds cannot be handled by anyone except their caregivers; however, all other animals can be touched if you like.  Upon adoption, simply call the KNC Registrar at (269) 381-1574 ext 24 to set up your time.
