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.

  • Everyone needs to wash their spirit clean where nature heals and gives strength to both body and soul. Grandfather Mountain has been a place that has helped me reconnect with nature every time I hike his trails. I can feel him whispering to me each visit, or while I'm just sitting on the side of the mountain seeking nothing but a cool breeze and the quiet he offers. I raised my two children on those trails, teaching them we are just caretakers of this wonderful place and it must be protected for the generations that follow. This place is special and GM never lets me down. We must continue to protect this sacred place and be sure that 100 years from now, all his beauty remains the same for those who follow.
