Adopt a White Squirrel

Make a Donation

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

For $25 per year, you can adopt your own white squirrel. You can select a boy or a girl and you will receive a Certificate of Adoption and a photo of your white squirrel.

It’s true, you’re not adopting a specific white squirrel in the wild. But your annual 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.

How to adopt a White Squirrel?

  • Download the Adopt a White Squirrel Application and mail in form with your payment.
  • Adopt on-line via Paypal.
  • Go to the Heart of Brevard Booth at the White Squirrel Festival and fill out the Adoption form.
  • If you have questions please contact the White Squirrel Institute through the contact form for more adoption information or call 828.548.0491.
