Are rhinos your favourite animal?

How do I adopt a rhino?

To adopt a rhino just click through to the rhino adoption page and choose if you’d like a bronze, silver or gold adoption. You can adopt for yourself or for someone special and we’ll also send a special gift message along with your cuddly rhino toy in your adoption pack.

Your rhino adoption will last for 12 months, and 10% of the profit will help raise money for our conservation partners including Dogs4Wildlife, a charity close to our hearts as our rhino keeper Jack is one of the directors and who train dogs to assist anti-poaching rangers in Africa. So by buying this gift you’re helping to save rhinos too.

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

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.
