Your otter adoption donation makes a difference for sea otters.
As a 100% volunteer-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we guarantee that all donations go directly and specifically to help sea otters recover in their Pacific Ocean habitats. Here is how. Each year, Sea Otter Foundation & Trust (SOFT) gives funding awards to sea otter biologists and sea otter conservation and education programs. Click here to learn more.
Our plush otters & stuffed animal otters make great Birthday gifts, Holiday gifts, Mother’s Day gifts, Father’s Day gifts, and Valentine’s Day gifts. Please consider adopting an otter today and we thank you for your donation to our nonprofit organization.
Special note as of 9/12/2021: We apologize; our stock of sea otter plushes has been affected by COVID-19 distribution chains; please see details regarding the availability of each of our plushes and make your adoption selection accordingly. We expect plenty of stock for the holiday season.
Are you outside the USA? Before adopting, please read our virtual-only sea otter adoption policy here.

We are operating under a virtual sea otter adoption only for all addresses outside of the United States of America. We apologize, but there are no exceptions. We will send you an e-mail of the sea otter adoption certificate as well as more information regarding how our organization is helping sea otters, but will not ship plush stuffed animals or documents to you at this time. We sincerely appreciate your donation at any level. Please contact us with any questions you may have.
