Lab Animal Adoptions

From colorful corn snakes to fuzzy tarantulas and adorable chinchillas, live animals are an exciting and beloved part of studying science at Hacienda. Dozens of animals, from bearded dragons to walking sticks, live in the science lab and classrooms so students can learn and enjoy them throughout the year.

Students have the opportunity to “adopt” one of Hacienda’s animals by donating any amount of money to help feed, house, and care for the animals. Students who adopt an animal receive a photo with their adopted animal, their name on the animal’s habitat and on a poster in the science lab, and they enjoy special animal holding sessions through out the year.

Watch for the animal adoption letter that comes home in September. Completed adoption forms are due back at school in early October. Thanks for your support!
