#GivingTuesday - Help Feed Your Favorite Animal for 1 Week

Posted On: Nov 28th, 2022

On November 29, we celebrate #GivingZooDay, in partnership with Giving Tuesday, a day when the entire country comes together to show support for nonprofits doing essential work. 

This Giving Tuesday, the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo asks for your support in donating to provide your favorite animal with food for one week.

Food is a critical necessity for our animals, just like for you as a person. The Zoo spends over $3,500 each week in providing just food for all of the animals at the zoo. As a non-profit organization, we rely on the generosity of our community and donors to help us care for each and every animal, and we appreciate you for choosing to support the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo this Giving Tuesday. 

Every dollar makes a difference!
