I Would Like to Make a Donation

Donations to the Zoo are fully tax-deductible because no benefits are offered in exchange. However, If you would like to receive recognition inside the Zoo or membership benefits, you might also be interested in our Animal Adoption Program or Contributing Membership Program. For more information, please review our Donor Privacy Policy.

Our annual Winter Fund campaign focuses fundraising efforts towards enhancing and modernizing our medical equipment to provide the best care possible for the growing number of animals in our care.
