Footsteps to the Future: Animal Sponsorship Program

Our Footsteps Donors List - Thank you, for your support!

What is Footsteps to the Future?

FOOTSTEPS is the Zoo’s animal sponsorship program. Money donated through this program supports wildlife conservation projects in Michigan and worldwide through our Wildlife Conservation Fund. The program has been updated with a new level available only online. Save time and resources with this option.

What animals can be adopted?

Virtually any animal at the zoo can be adopted. Our FOOTSTEPS brochure includes a partial list of animals to help with ideas. Feel free to call (616-336-3036) and we can work with you on special sponsorships not listed.
