YOU can make a HUGE difference here at the Zoo by simply making donations or by volunteering! Even small things can really help us out - for instance, items like hose nozzles or towels can help us keep the Zoo sparkling clean for the animals! Volunteering your time is also a great way to help. We house over 300 animals here at the Zoo, so our to-do list is always full - extra hands are always appreciated!

  Donate items!
  With all our animals here at the Zoo, we could always use more supplies! Here is our wishlist:

  • Box fans
  • Small chest freezers 
  • Crates - good condition, various sizes 
  • Pine shavings and bedding materials
  • Hoses and nozzles 
  • AMDRO (ant insecticide)
  • Scrub brushes, mops, brooms, sponges
  • Reptile lamps (heat lamps and UV bulbs)
  • Food bowls
  • Towels and linens 
  • Fresh produce 

  To make a donation, simply drop off your items in the gift shop at the front of the Zoo! If you are curious as to a particular      item and whether or not we could use it, please call us ahead of time at (361) 573-7681.
