How do I adopt a red panda?

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

Your red panda adoption will last 12 months, and 10% of the profits will help raise money for our conservation partners. So you can feel all ‘fuzzy’ inside about your wonderful gift.

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

More fun facts about red pandas

These furry fuzzy family favourites are actually more closely related to racoons than the black and white giant pandas. Also known as the lesser panda, red bear-cat and red cat-bear they are found in the Eastern Himalayas and South-western China.

Red panda adoption reviews

"Father Christmas gave me a red panda adoption pack from Folly Farm. I have called my red panda Firefox. The fact sheet that came with my adoption pack was really interesting and I can’t wait to meet my adopted red panda at Folly Farm - I am visiting in April."

Alex Sayers, Berkshire, 5 out of 5, 25 February 2019

"I adopted a red panda for my son, even though it’s myself that loves them. The certificate, letter and information page are now on his bedroom wall! Will be doing it again next year."
