Have you ever wanted an alpaca of your own, but don't live on a farm?


and Get Special Privileges with a Real Live Alpaca!

Owning an alpaca is a lot of work, takes a very big commitment and requires some land! Windrush Alpacas already has over 60 alpacas that we love and take care of every day. We want to share the best parts of the experience with you!

Join Our Adopt-a-Paca© Program!

How it works: You select one of our alpacas that is participating in the Adopt-a-Paca© Program on our farm and become his or her sponsor for one full year! This is what you receive as a sponsor:

  • An Adoption Certificate
  • An 8x10 picture of your alpaca 
  • A copy of the Alpaca Registry, Inc. (ARI) registration certificate showing your alpaca's date of birth and lineage
  • Periodic pen pal letters from your alpaca 
  • Monthly e-mail newsletters from the farm 
  • Access to a private group Facebook page 


Give an Adopt-A-Paca© Sponsorship as a Gift 

If you would like to gift an Adopt-A-Paca© to a friend or family member, it’s easy to do! We can either send the Welcome Package to you, so you can personally give it to the person, or we can mail it directly to them and indicate this is a gift from you.  Please remember this is not an instant gift.  Allow sufficient time for us to prepare it and mail it to the person you wish to receive the gift.

  1. Go to the registration page.
  2. Mark YES to “Is this a Gift?”
  3. Type YOUR name, YOUR email & YOUR phone number in the next two fields.
  4. In the field tell us if you want the Welcome Packet mailed to you or the sponsor (recipient of the gift).
  5.  If it is to be mailed to you, please provide your mailing address.
  6. Fill out the remainder of the form with the Sponsor’s contact information so they can receive Pen Pal letters.

All This In Exchange For $35!

Your participation in the program will help us continue to ensure our alpacas are healthy, happy and well fed! Your $35 equates out to >1 1/2 bales of hay. You may even get some neat bonuses during the year - you'll just have to wait and see! If you can, come out to Windrush Alpacas on our next Open Farm Day Event to meet the alpacas in person and select the one you want to call your own. Or view their bios on our store. Every alpaca has their very own personality. We'll gladly help you select one you will enjoy.

**Please note: Our Adopt-a-Paca© program is very special to us. We truly appreciate your support of our farm. Rosemary, our owner, personally processes the paperwork for each sponsorship. She also cares for the alpacas. It can take 48-72 hours for your welcome packages to be mailed, with another 4-7 days before it is delivered to your recipient.

Your contribution of $35 is used toward covering the costs of daily care for your alpaca and is non-refundable. Your payment of support does not constitute ownership of the animal but only entitles you to the above-listed benefits. Sponsorships are not exclusive to one individual per alpaca. Others can sponsor this alpaca too.  The sponsorship will last for 12 months at which time you can renew for another year or pick a new alpaca.
