Show you care. 

Your symbolic adoption puts you in partnership with the professionals at Catoctin Wildlife Preserve.

When you “adopt” one of the Preserve’s animals, you contribute to its care and feeding for one full year. In addition to veterinary services, exhibit upgrades, enrichment puzzles and wellness programs, the Catoctin Wildlife Preserve spends more than $200,000 a year for food – from hay to hamburger to specialty diets.

You adoption donation also supports important education and conservation programs at the Catoctin Wildlife Preserve.
