Animal Enrichment Wish List

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 Office located at 200 Goold Street.
