Thank you for considering adopting one or more of our animals. The money collected will go directly to benefit the animals through: diet, vet care, enrichment items, habitat improvements, and grooming supplies.
SciWorks is home to more than 100 animals, all of which are used for educational programs and/or exhibits. Many of them are non-releasable, wild animals. Others are domestic animals that were obtained through rescue groups.
SciWorks’ Adopt-An-Animal Program is a sponsorship program in which participants make a donation to assist with the care of SciWorks’ animals. Your tax-deductible, symbolic adoption will be used for food, veterinary care, enrichment, and habitat improvements.
SciWorks has all required state and federal animal permits. Our facility is inspected annually by the USDA and by the NC Wildlife Resources Commission.
