Adopting an animal is an exciting way to support KNC's animal care and learn more about these amazing animals. 

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

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.  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 to set up your time.
