In-kind donations of goods help offset the Zoo's operating budget by supplying needed time and materials from generous donors. Animal care specialists need treats, toys, and supplies for the animals to keep their environments as tidy as possible. If you are willing to help, please take a look at the list below. You may have many of these items laying around in your home! Enrichment donations can be dropped off at the Zootique gift shop located at 2131 N. Main Street or at the Zoo administrative offices located at 200 Goold Street.
We also have an animal wish list on Amazon.com. Feel free to browse the specific list of your favorite animal and have your gift shipped right to the Zoo. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
