You can also give that unique gift, you can adopt an animal for someone for the holidays or a birthday or just for fun. For a small fee anyone can adopt one, or more, of their farm favorites for a full year. New parents will receive a certificate of adoption and a photo of their adoptee. They will also have their name added to the adoption board for all to see. During the annual special appreciation day, animal parents will have the opportunity to interact with their farm friends on a personal level. Click here to Adopt an Animal.
