This is it! Roanoke Valley Gives is here! Unlike the zoos in most cities, Mill Mountain Zoo receives less than 5% of it’s funding from municipal sources. Instead of government funds, Mill Mountain Zoo is supported primarily through admissions, gift shop sales, education programs, events and donations from people like you. By donating to Mill Mountain Zoo, you are helping us to provide safe and healthy homes to animals in need and to help us to show people why it is so important to protect wildlife near and far.
