Adopt a giraffe

Would you like to adopt a giraffe?

Well, we’re offering you the chance to do just that with this truly unique gift for that someone special in your life.

***The last order date to receive your animal adoption in time for Christmas is Thursday 17th December 2020.***

Our ‘adopt a giraffe’ pack makes the perfect gift, costs a one-off payment of £30 and includes:

  1. An adoption certificate
  2. A giraffe fact sheet
  3. A giraffe cuddly toy
  4. Your name displayed on a thank you board at the Giraffe Heights enclosure

If you’d like to include an entrance ticket to Folly Farm in your giraffe adoption gift pack the price is just £40 and includes all of the above plus an entrance ticket for one person (a saving of £6.95 on a standard adult day entry ticket).

How do I adopt a giraffe?

To adopt a giraffe just click through to the giraffe adoption page and choose if you’d like to adopt with, or without, an entrance ticket included.  You can adopt a giraffe for yourself or for someone special and we’ll also send a special gift message along with your cuddly giraffe in your adoption pack.

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.

Schools and group organisations can also purchase our adoption packages. Please call the office on 01834 812731 to make arrangements.

"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, 14 May 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."
