Adopt an Animal

Your support helps the Des Moines Carousel Foundation offer this wholesome, affordable and nostalgic form of entertainment to many people each year.

Help the Carousel Cause, Adopt-an-Animal for the season!

We are working on adoptions for the 2017 season!  

Naming rights to animal of your choice for the season (on a first come basis!)

Fun for families, A thoughtful memorial,
A terrific way for your business to be acknowledged as a donor.

Your name, the name of a loved one or your business will be displayed, along with the chosen name for your animal above each Carousel animal that you adopt for the season. This same listing will also be identified next to a photo of your adopted animal on the Carousel web site. Business logos and a link to your business site will be shown.

Included with the naming rights are a season pass or a carousel t-shirt.

Adoption Minimum Donation – $150

A statement of the donation minus the value of good/services received will be provided. If you prefer not to receive the goods/services please make that known when donation is made.

The information by the animal photo identifies where the animal or chariot is located on the Carousel. Ex: Lead Horse (R5,O) means it is located in row 5 toward the outside of the Carousel. The other locations are M - middle and I - inside.
