Houston Zoo Fund

Help Our Houston Zoo Recover from the Impact of COVID-19

Donate Now

Now, more than ever… your Zoo needs you!

It’s impossible to overstate the impact of COVID-19 on the Houston Zoo. The closure cut off 70% of the funds we use to provide top-tier veterinary care, enrichment, and nutrition to thousands of animals. And with our Zoo reopened at greatly reduced capacity, the financial impact of the pandemic grows every day.

We’ve cut expenses, but we won’t take shortcuts when it comes to caring for our animals. Please help care for the Houston Zoo animals you love by supporting this urgent campaign for the Houston Zoo Fund.
