The Chicago Zoological Society's Brookfield Zoo is located in Brookfield, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. The zoo opened in 1934 and currently cares for over 450 species of animals. Animal Adoption is a program where people can sponsor an animal through a monetary gift. The animal would remain at the zoo and be cared for by zookeepers and staff in their habitats. When an animal is adopted and the person has gifted a specific amount of money towards the upkeep of that animal, the person becomes an animal parent. Money not only goes towards upkeep, but also towards research and conservation of the species.
