Sponsor an Animal at CuriOdyssey
Give a meaningful, unique gift; sponsor an animal at CuriOdyssey and you will help support the animals that call CuriOdyssey “home.” You can help us provide for the care and feeding of the museum’s wildlife by sponsoring an animal for one year through the Sponsor-An-Animal program.

Choose Your Animal
Choose barn owl, bobcat, burrowing owl, desert tortoise, gray fox, great horned owl, porcupine, raccoon, river otter, or opossum
Our barn owls came to us in 2015. One was captive hatched at a zoo and the other was a former pet that imprinted on humans. Help us keep them comfortable in their home at CuriOdyssey!
Our Burrowing Owls came to us in Fall 2016 from other zoos. We were happy to give them their own burrows in our walk-through aviary.
Dylan was found with West Nile Virus and a broken leg. He was nursed back to health, but cannot survive on his own. Help us provide a quiet, interesting home full of his favorite food: berries!
North American Porcupine
Poppy came to CuriOdyssey in July 2018 at only two months old! She loves munching on treats and showing off her quills. She is growing quickly, look for her the next time you visit.
North American River Otter
Gunner was abandoned by his mother and raised briefly with dogs. He came to CuriOdyssey 8 years ago and has been frolicking to the delight of visitors ever since.
Frankie has a neurological disorder and Caro had pneumonia when he was just five weeks old. Rescuers and the rehab center saved them, we gave them a forever home, and now you can help us keep them healthy and happy.
Desert tortoises can't go back to the wild once they've been taken out of their native desert. At CuriOdyssey, Antiguo and Spork will live their lives eating all the dandelion leaves, spinach, and fruit they could want!
Great Horned Owl
Solo was found as an adult missing part of her left wing. She came to CuriOdyssey 22 years ago and in that time, has met and inspired thousands of people. Help us keep her healthy enough to inspire thousands more.
One of our raccoons was a former pet who was given up, one got too used to being fed by humans outside a home, and two were born at other zoos. All came here for their forever home.
Hilda was found orphaned in the wild and had an infection that caused arthritis in her front right elbow. She has limited mobility in that limb and thus was not releasable and came to CuriOdyssey in 2022.
