Every Animal at the Houston Zoo Has a Unique Story

Whether it’s the birth of baby Asian elephant Duncan or the arrival of a rescued animal like Lilly the wombat, we celebrate every animal’s story. Though each story is unique, there is one common theme: your favorite animal family receives the best nutrition we can provide, thanks in part to sustained support from thousands of donors in this community!

Read below to learn how you can be a part of our animals’ stories by giving the Gift of Grub!

Your Donation Helps Nourish 6,000 Animals

No matter the amount, every contribution provides for the well-being of our animals and the success of the Houston Zoo! With the total annual cost of feeding our animals approaching nearly $1 million, your donation is more crucial – and more appreciated – than ever.

Give the Gift of Grub by December 31 and TXU Energy will match your gift!

For the fourth year in a row our partner, TXU Energy, is generously matching every gift, doubling the impact of every dollar donated. Join them today and give the Gift of Grub!
