Adopt an Alpaca
Choose your favorite in time for Christmas …
It’s not too early to SHOP FOR CHRISTMAS! Adopt an alpaca, virtually, as a gift to yourself or to a loved one. A symbolic alpaca adoption is never “out of stock” and we’ve never had one “returned.” This gift always “fits” and requires no batteries or other maintenance. It’s perfect for those people who seem to have everything. What are the odds that they already have a virtual alpaca? If so, why not start a collector’s series? With advanced notice, you can even visit your alpaca when you come to Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, home of the Sisters of Providence.
Celebrating new life!
Join us in welcoming Providence Jack Francis, a new cria (baby alpaca) at the Woods born Sept. 18. Jack Francis was named after Jack Worley, a longtime farm volunteer who has assisted with our alpacas for over 10 years. Francis was chosen as his middle name as a nod to Saint Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and the environment.
He’s available for adoption – just choose him in the drop down menu below.
Jack’s mom is Spring, an alpaca we acquired a few years ago and his papa is Providence Pere. Welcome to the Woods, Jack Francis!
When you adopt an alpaca (or two), you can choose to send your gift directly to the lucky recipient or have it delivered to you, to deliver personally.
The cost to adopt an alpaca for one year is $100, and helps provide for the upkeep of our animals and sacred grounds. It’s also a unique opportunity to support the Sisters of Providence and our ministries.
Each adoption includes a:
- 5″ x 7″ photo collage of your alpaca
- personalized adoption certificate
- thank-you letter that explains the impact of the program.
Choose the alpaca that’s right for you to adopt, today.
Which alpaca loves snacks? Who gives the best kisses? This year we’ve included some information about each of our alpaca’s personalities as well as their birthday, so you can pick the one that’s perfect for you or your lucky gift recipient.
