General Veterinary Care
At times, the Zoo's veterinary staff requires highly specialized equipment that must be purchased quickly or that cannot be provided through the state budgeting process. In these situations, the Zoo Society will step in purchase these items. Please use the form below to make a donation in support of general veterinary care at the Zoo.
Veterinary Conservation Research
Donations to the Zoo Society fully fund the Veterinary staff’s Conservation Medicine Program, which carries out research, provides training and purchases equipment related to the medical needs of rare and endangered species. For example, this program monitors the health of wild snakes found on the Zoo's grounds, surveys amphibian populations for disease, and studies the pharmacokinetics of white rhinos.
