Sponsor an Animal! 

Sponsoring an animal is a special and unique gift for the animal lover in your life. We offer several adoption plans for our reptiles & amphibians as well as a special sponsorship option for our birds of prey. All sponsorships are for one year.


At Woodcock, our resident animals are a key element of our programs. Most of our animals visit with hundreds of students each year and enjoy that part of their jobs!

 

For more information about sponsoring an animal, please email Animal Curator, Jennifer Bradshaw or call (203) 762-7280.

****Please note: In order to receive your package before Christmas, you must purchase your sponsorship on or before Dec. 15, 2023!! 

*Please allow 5-7 business days to receive your package.
