Soaring Sponsorship

Providing Sanctuary Through Adoption

If you wish to adopt one of the birds and do not wish to use the internet, please call the office ( 303-680-8500 ) and we can complete the process over the phone.  Thank you.

Memorial Adoptions: Any of the raptor categories below may be adopted in memory of a deceased friend or family member. If memorial certificates require framing, depending on time requirements, these will incur a rush charge. Our Silver and Gold adoptions include framing in the adoption fee-other categories do not.  The Platinum sponsorship is our exclusive adoption commitment and provides for the complete support of one or more birds for an entire twelve month period. Please request specific information on becoming a Platinum sponsor. If you are interested in a Memorial Adoption, please call the office: 303-680-8500.  We will be happy to personalize this for you i.e., for Silver levels and higher, we can add a photo of the adopting party to the certificate. We will need a digital file or a photo to scan.  We also welcome your suggestion. Adoption fees cover pro-rated costs of housing, feeding, veterinary care, and training. Exclusive feeding support is found on the Meet Our Raptors page.

*Copper sponsorships are reserved for individuals, schools, and other youth organizations only.

Dollar amounts are minimum pledges for each level and may be exceeded by any amount until the next level is reached.
**Exclusive Platinum sponsorships available. Contact the Foundation for more information. Silver and Gold levels receive bi-annual reports on the status of their adopted raptor, and a framed certificate. Bronze and Copper levels receive a certificate.  REF Membership is included with each adoption category except the Copper level. Adoption periods last one year.

You can meet some of the raptors currently cared for by the Foundation here. Printed adoption form below.
