    • Zoo members are asked to show a photo I.D. for each named adult on their membership card when visiting the Zoo. Please bring your membership card with you to receive free parking, admission and Zoo discounts. Zoo memberships are non-transferable, non-refundable, and cannot be shared by two households. Membership prices, categories and benefits are subject to change without notice.
    • When using your membership card or guest privileges, one of the named adults on the card must be present for admittance. Members cannot substitute a friend or relative for a named cardholder. Your Toledo Zoo membership has a tremendous value. Each membership is designed for a specified set of individuals – it is not an open-ended admission card. By naming each adult and requiring them to show a second form of identification, we are protecting the integrity of the membership and the benefits associated with it. If you wish to bring friends or relatives to the Zoo, please consider adding the +1 or +2 guest option to your membership, or an upgrade to our President’s Circle, which provides 20 guest privileges per year.
    • Please allow a minimum of two weeks processing time. If you are ordering or renewing a membership within this time frame and need your materials sooner, please contact the Zoo’s Membership Department at 419-724-5915. If purchasing a membership as a holiday gift, please make your purchase by December 12th to ensure delivery by Christmas.
    • If you’ve already purchased your membership by mail and have not received your card by the time you plan to visit, please stop at our Membership Sales window located in the Anthony Wayne Trail entry plaza for a day pass.
