Every Dollar You Give Supports Animal Care
The Houston Zoo is home to thousands of animals. As you can imagine, we go through TONS of food! Thanks to donors like you, we’re able to provide nutritious meals and tasty treats to every animal—from tiny meerkats to giant giraffes. This holiday season, “Give the Gift of Grub” to your favorite animals at the Houston Zoo. All funds raised from the Gift of Grub campaign go directly to supporting our animal care efforts.
DOUBLE Your Gift, Thanks to TXU Energy
Our partner, TXU Energy, is generously matching every contribution, up to $50,000, until December 31. That means a tax-deductible gift of $50 is worth $100. Double the grub goodness you could provide our animals by taking advantage of this matching gift opportunity!
Here’s how your gift could feed Houston Zoo animals!
Asian Small-Clawed Otter
Hope is a member of the world’s smallest otter species, but she has no problem devouring a feast of fish! Hope and her mate, Danh Tu, live together in Carruth Natural Encounters.
Your Gift of $25 Could Buy Five Pounds of Tempting Trout
