Mill Mountain Zoo Go Fund Me Winter Fund

Mill Mountain Zoo is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to promoting an appreciation and understanding of animal and habitat preservation through the use of quality exhibits, educational programs, and partnerships with other conservation programs.  The Zoo’s 65 years of success are a testimony to the dedication of many individuals whom have shared their talent, resources, and hard work to advance the organization and its mission.  Unlike many city zoos, Mill Mountain Zoo does not receive a large portion of its funding from municipal sources.  Mill Mountain Zoo’s current annual budget is funded primarily by admissions, concessions, education programs, events, and private donations.

It costs $2500 per day to run the zoo, and winter can be particularly difficult as our admissions drop during the colder months.  In addition to needing funds to help us feed and care for the animals, Mill Mountain Zoo needs 6 new Generac portable generators to keep the power on and make sure the animals are safe during winter storms and weather.  We also need to purchase new Husqvarna chainsaws and chainsaw chaps to help with grounds clean-up after snow and ice storms.

Donate today and help us care for the animals by keeping them warm and safe this winter.  Thank you for your support of our furry, feathery and scaly friends!
