Adoptions & Sponsorships

Adoptions & Sponsorships

You can ‘have’ your very own exotic animal by adopting or sponsoring any one of the many animals that call Turpentine Creek home.

Under the Adoption Program, we coordinate 20 individuals or families to jointly sponsor an animal. This program is fun and affordable.

Family Adoption Members receive a yearly membership pass to Turpentine Creek to visit with their ‘new family member’ and an 8×10 glossy certificate combination photo/bio of their adopted animal; in addition, their name is added to the “Family Tree” for their animal which will become part of our “Adoption Forest” display.

Full Sponsorship Members receive a yearly membership pass, a high quality sponsorship certificate, and an 8×10 glossy photograph of their sponsored animal. All sponsors also have a second photo/certificate with their name displayed on our Sponsorship Wall.

All adoption and sponsor memberships are valid for a full year from the date of of purchase.
