Donation Programs

Friends of Capron Park Zoo is grateful to all the many donors who provide the crucial funding that allows us to support one of the most beloved community destinations – Capron Park Zoo – in the Attleboro Area. We rely on the generosity of many individuals to make this possible, and we welcome gifts at all levels.

Your gift strengthens and enhances the Zoo, and your philanthropy is rewarded with world-class animal care, engaging environmental education programs, new visitor experiences, and exciting zoo exhibits that showcase animals from all over the globe. Help us keep Capron Park Zoo a continuously improving resource for years to come.


If you’re like us, you think animals are pretty darn special. Now, you can show your support of one or more of the furry, feathery and scaly friends by adopting an animal at Capron Park Zoo! Adoptions are a fun and unique way to recognize a birthday, anniversary or hard-earned achievement. Whatever YOUR special occasion is, the gift of a symbolic adoption will help to support the future of the Zoo.

For $25, you will receive an adoption certificate, color photo of your ‘wild child’, a fun fact card and the satisfaction of knowing you are helping some very special critters. The money raised from the Adopt-an-Animal program is used to help better the lives of the animals in the Zoo’s care. Exhibit renovation, environmental enrichment and animal acquisition are just some of the important things your donation helps to fund.

Please note: No ownership rights or complementary visits to the Zoo are conferred by this “adoption.” Animals will continue to stay at Capron Park Zoo under the care of the Zoo’s professional zookeeper team.

In Memorium and Planned Giving

Many families choose to honor the memory of their loved ones by requesting donations be made to the Friends of Capron Park Zoo, the Zoo’s nonprofit fundraising arm. Some benefactors support the Zoo by including it in their estate plans. The most common form of planned giving is a bequest made though a will or trust; the wide range of these opportunities also includes life income and deferred gifts, which can provide financial and tax benefits to donors during their lifetimes and help to shape the future of Capron Park Zoo in perpetuity.

When you make a gift in someone’s memory, please be sure to identify the name of the individual being honored. FCPZ will  notify the individual’s family of your generous tribute.

Select “Tribute” as the donation type on the link to below.

Alternatively, checks can me mailed to The Friends of Capron Park Zoo, P.O. Box 821, Attleboro, MA 02703; Attn: Tributes.
