Symbolically Adopt an Animal

What is your favorite animal at the Butterfly House & Aquarium? Is it the bright Blue Morpho? The curious Cownose Stingray? The playful Button Quail? Or maybe it's the mysterious Mantis!

Whichever it is, you now have the opportunity to show your support by symbolically adopting your favorite animal today!

Our delicate animals need specialized care to live here in South Dakota, and your symbolic adoption ensures we can provide the proper habitat, diet, and veterinary needs to these animals, each and every day!

For a limited time, you have the opportunity to DOUBLE your impact! Our board members have generously decided to match every donation received, up to $25,000, through December 31st, 2021. Don't miss out on this great opportunity to have a real-time impact on the Butterfly House & Aquarium!

With your symbolic adoption, you will receive a digital adoption certificate, photograph, and fact sheet about your animal.

A symbolic adoption also makes a great gift!
