Adopt an Alpaca

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. Thank you for your continued support.

So many fuzzy alpaca friends to choose from!

How to adopt your alpaca

The cost to adopt an alpaca for one year is $100. Your donation helps provide for the upkeep of our animals and sacred grounds. It’s a unique opportunity to support the Sisters of Providence and our ministries.

Jack Francis is one of our young alpacas. Adopt him today!

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.

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.

Choose the alpaca that’s right for you to adopt, today.

Which alpaca loves snacks? Who gives the best kisses? 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.

Note: As a non-profit, we are unable to ship gift packages via tracked mail, and we cannot guarantee shipping times. We are unable to delay or expedite shipping so that the adoption package arrives on a specific date. We ship our items for our valued supporters via first-class or priority mail as a special thank-you. All items are sent out as expeditiously as possible once a donation has been made.
Estimated delivery time for your adoption(s) is 2-3 weeks from the time you made your donation, depending on the United States Postal Service.
