Adopt an Animal Grandfather Mtn

Adopt an Animal

When you adopt an animal through the Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation, you help improve the lives of the animals in our care — from Logan the cougar to Nova the river otter.

Since the founding of the Stewardship Foundation in 2009, funds have gone to upgrading the habitats in which these animals live — and to purchase treats, toys and other enrichments to give the animals something fun and different to liven up their day.

Adopted animals make great gifts, too. If this is intended as a gift, please indicate whose name we should include on the adoption certificate and the address to which we should mail it. Allow at least a week for it to reach the recipient.

See current animals for adoption below, each with 5 levels of donation:

  • $25 Level includes Certificate of Adoption, 5×7 photograph with description of adopted animal & Grandfather Mountain eNewsletter subscription
  • $50 Level includes everything from the $25 level, plus a Plush Animal and photo upgrade to 8×10
  • $100 Level Includes everything from the $50 level, plus Cast of animal footprint and 2 adult day passes to the park
  • $250 Level Includes everything from the $100 level, plus Pass upgrade for 6 adult day passes to the park instead of 2
  • $500 Level includes everything from the $250 level, plus Behind-the-scenes group tour for 6 and a visit with your animal!
