How do I adopt a giraffe?

Your giraffe adoption will last for 12 months, and 10% of the profit will help raise money for our conservation partners. So by buying an adoption, you’ll be helping animals in the wild.

Useful information about animal adoption purchases

  • We only send our adoption packs to addresses with a UK postcode and the cost of postage is included in the price of an adoption.
  • As a personalised product, animal adoption packs are non-refundable, non-exchangeable and not for resale. If your gift pack arrives damaged, if there is a mistake on the adoption certificate or if the wrong item has been sent, then please email us photos and we’ll send a replacement item.
  • Our adoptions are for the species rather than a specific, named animal.

Claire Preece, Hereford, 5 out of 5, 31 January 2022

A fantastic product! We adopted a giraffe to support Folly Farm whilst it’s closed during lockdown. Our little boy was overjoyed when it arrived. The cuddly giraffe is really good quality and really cute. I think it's great value for money."

"From the moment the adoption pack arrived to us going to find Tiggy’s name on the adoption board there was so much excitement. It’s such a wonderful gift to give, Tiggy loves her soft toy giraffe and visiting to see "her giraffe". I'd highly recommend".

Megan Jones, Pembrokeshire, 5 out of 5, 19 April 2018

"My daughter's friends adopted a giraffe for her 16th birthday, she absolutely loved it. Ideal if you're looking for something different to give as a gift. She can't wait to visit this year to see her giraffe."
