Adopt a White Squirrel

Here’s a unique opportunity for you to “adopt” a white squirrel and contribute towards their preservation and conservation in Brevard, North Carolina.

Our White Squirrel Adoptions are $25 and you can adopt your own white squirrel or gift one. Select a boy or a girl white squirrel, name your white squirrel and receive a Official Adoption Certificate and a photo of your white squirrel. 

Your adoption fee will be directed towards the efforts of our local White Squirrel rehabilitation efforts. Funds raised will also help defray costs associated with the annual white squirrel count, printed materials regarding the results of the survey, and other conservation-related expenses. 

Please note your adoption donation fee of $25 is a one time charge.
