Animal of the Month


When will the gift recipient receive their first adoption by? No later than December 22nd. We'll ship the first gift by December 16th with complimentary Express Shipping at no additional cost.

If I'm giving this as a gift, will each gift come to me or to my designated gift recipient? Each gift will go to your recipient as long as you select "ship to another address" on the order form.

When will the subsequent 11 months of adoptions be delivered? You or your gift recipient can expect to receive each subsequent adoption by the second week of every month. The first month will arrive in time for the Christmas Holiday, December 22nd.

Will each subsequent gift be gift bagged? No, only the first month's gift will be gift bagged, but each monthly adoption package is lovingly assembled and is guaranteed to delight your recipient.

How does this help real animals? Proceeds from our adoption and gift catalog support Defenders of Wildlife's tireless advocacy for wildlife and their habitats across the country. We are on the ground in the Northern Rockies fighting for gray wolves. And we are in Washington, DC defending the Endangered Species Act. And those are just some of the projects you'll be supporting.

Is my adoption tax-deductible? Yes! Your gift is tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.

Whom do I contact if an adoption package does not arrive or if my recipient moves? Call our member services department: (800) 385-9712, 9:00 am - 6:00 pm EST, Monday-Friday.
