No space for your own pet? 

Then adopt one!

By adopting an animal, you support Zoo Görlitz in a very personal way in improving the housing conditions for the animals at the zoo.

In recent years we have built new, spacious enclosures for or modified existing ones. But there are still enclosures that need to be changed in the interests of our animals.
