Adoptions & Sponsorship

Please Note: Adoptions changed as of January 1, 2019. Read below.

Adoption And Sponsorship Programs

Donate in honor of your favorite animal(s) and help Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge provide lifetime homes for exotic felines and bears in need.

An excellent way to help the animals at the Refuge is to consider donating in honor of your favorite animal through our Adoption or Sponsorship programs. 

Adoptions

Our Adoption Program allows you to make a $150 donation in honor of your favorite Turpentine Creek animal and symbolically “adopt” them. Your donation goes towards the care of all the animals that live at Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge.

With your “adoption” you will receive a gift of a 11×8.5 glossy certificate with a photo of the animal you donated in honor of, a short bio, and your name. There are no limits on how many individuals can symbolically adopt an animal.

Adoptions changed as of January 1, 2019. After that date, all adoptions are $150 (no matter the species) and will NOT include a membership. All adoptions purchased BEFORE January 1, 2019, will be as they have been in the past and will be honored. The membership with the 2018 adoptions can be used until it expires. 

Sponsorship

Our Sponsorship program allows you to make a $700, $1,000, $2,200, or $2,500 donation contributing to the care of the animals that call Turpentine Creek home and symbolically “sponsor” your favorite animal. Your donation, minus $90 that will be put towards your membership card unless you opt out, goes towards the care of all the animals that live at Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge.

With your sponsorship, you will receive a pride membership card (unless you opt out of it) and gifts of an 8×10 glossy photo of your chosen animal, a certificate with your animal’s bio and your name. Please check on animal availability before you choose the animal you wish to donate in honor of for sponsorship. Only one symbolic sponsorship is allowed per animal.

Sponsor memberships are valid for a full year from the date of purchase.
