This is an unprecedented moment in the Houston Zoo’s long history. As our Zoo recovers from its three-and-a-half-month closure and reopening at a limited capacity, 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
