Adopt an Otter

Your otter adoption makes a difference for sea otters.

Pick your own sea otter plush stuffed animal. Our otter adoption packages make great holiday gifts for wildlife lovers, especially otter lovers. Our plush sea otter adoption gifts or stuffed sea otter adoption kits are excellent birthday gifts too.  Please consider symbolically adopting an otter today and we thank you for your donation to our nonprofit organization.

Fill out the Buy Now PayPal button below with your information; this ensures we receive all the necessary details for your adoption.  Be sure to include the sea otter you would like to adopt as well as the level you would like to adopt.  Please note: we do not ship outside of the USA, we offer a virtual-only adoption (see below and read details) for addresses outside of the USA.

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.
