Mill Mountain Zoo Supporters,

Roanoke Valley Gives is an initiative of the Foundation for Roanoke Valley. The goal is to raise funding for participating Roanoke Valley nonprofits in a 24 hour period, while bringing attention to the work of each participating organization. All donations to participating organizations are tax deductible and it is an opportunity for people in the community to “give where they live” on March 14th!

As many of you know, it costs $2,500 per day to run the zoo. In addition to needing funds to help us feed and care for the animals, the Mill Mountain Zoo needs a replacement  heat and air pump for the downstairs of our administration building, where our education animal ambassadors live. The unit, along with installation costs $3,500.

We are also hoping to raise another $4,000 to purchase (4) Avian flight cages for our holding building to help with animal care and veterinary treatment. Your donations during Roanoke Valley Gives will help us raise the funds required for these needs.  You can even pre-schedule your donation and it’s as easy as point-click-give!  Follow this link to our RVG profile page, and mark March 14th on your calendar!

Thanks for your support!
