Animal Adoptions

Adopt An Animal

When you adopt an animal at Loveland Living Planet Aquarium (LLPA), you help us provide the best possible animal care. We are dedicated to providing engaging environments and high-quality nutrition tailored to their individual needs. Your animal adoption shows that you care about this, too.

With more than 4,000 animals and 550 species living in LLPA, there are a lot of hungry mouths to feed! Our animals are fed the best restaurant-grade produce from Harmons Grocery, freshly prepared on-site every day by our Animal Husbandry team to exact specifications.

Your support helps cover the costs associated with giving quality care and food for one year. Help us take care of your favorite Aquarium animal by adopting one today! Please allow 24 hours for picking up Animal Adoptions from the Aquarium.

Thank you to Scheels for supporting the Adopt An Animal Program.
