Adopt an Animal

When you adopt an animal through the Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation, you help improve the lives of the animals in our care — from Aspen the cougar to Shakespeare the barred owl.

Since the founding of the Stewardship Foundation in 2009, funds have gone to upgrading the habitats in which these animals live — and to purchase treats, toys and other distractions to give the animals something fun and different to liven up their day.

Enjoy your adopted animal on a whole new level.

Adopt at any level and know your animal—and you—will be well cared for. Celebrating a birthday or special occasion? Adoptions make great gifts too.

  • I was amazed with the scenery and the way the mountains just made my mouth drop in awe and wonder.  I have began hiking as a hobby lately after having a major back surgery in January 2010.  Now after coming there I have a new goal to hike up MacRae Peak so we will be coming back in a few months  and hopefully bring more people with us.  We really enjoyed the natural habitat and the bears. You people really know how to entertain us. The staff was very very and a special thanks to Jill on top of the Mountain at the Swinging Bridge for explaining the points and mountains to us.  She is to be my tour guide when I come back !
