This is an unprecedented moment in the Houston Zoo’s long history. We’ve closed our gates for three weeks to do our part to help slow the spread of COVID-19, but our team continues to work tirelessly to care for our animals. Our Zoo relies on tickets, memberships, and donations to ensure the animals that make your trips to the Zoo so special continue to receive veterinary care and nutritious meals. There has never been a time when your philanthropic support has been more critical.

By supporting the Emergency Zoo Fund, you’ll help our animals in the following ways:

  • Daily care – our animals continue to receive enrichment items like puzzle feeders for meerkats and bones for carnivores
  • Veterinary care – our vets continue to provide our animals with check-ups and medical procedures
  • Nutrition – our animal nutritionists continue to prepare and deliver meals for hundreds of different species
