Supplies Wish List

These are items we need to keep up the animals living areas and feed daily. If you can help, we’d really appreciate it, and so would the animals. Remember, your donations are tax deductible! (updated 12/11/2012)

* We feed 1,500 lbs. of food to the animals every day, 7 days a week! We do not believe in fasting the animals one day a week, as some zoos and private collectors do.
