Adopt an Animal

Please donate today to help us look after the animals in our care.

Are you loco for lizards or silly about snakes? We love our creatures at South Shields Museum & Art Gallery, and we hope that you do too. Why not adopt one of our amazing animals and help us to keep them cosy, clean and well fed?

All the animals need a lot of care from our dedicated team, including clean homes, fresh bedding, lots of food, and in some cases even regular walks. By adopting an animal for a year, you will support the museum to continue to provide specialist care for our wonderful collection of spiders, lizards and snakes.

In return, we will let you know how your animal is getting on in a twice yearly newsletter, and we will acknowledge your name (or the name of your choice) in the museum for one year.

Spiders £2.50 per month or £30 per year

Your name will be displayed in the museum for one year, and you will receive a newsletter twice a year.

Lizards £4 per month or £48 per year

Your name will be displayed in the museum for one year, and you will receive a newsletter twice a year. Plus you will be invited to an early opening ‘Meet the Animals’ session once per year.

Snakes £5.50 per month or £66 per year

Your name will be displayed in the museum for one year, and you will receive a newsletter twice a year. You will be invited to a special ‘Meet the Animals’ session once per year, plus you will get invites to other special events and activities at South Shields Museum & Art Gallery, and two free tickets to a charging event.

Please donate today.
