All for our Animals

We are here for our animals - and each other.

Make a Donation

During these challenging and unprecedented times Zoo New England remains committed, as we always have, to our mission to protect and sustain the natural world for future generations. In response to this global pandemic, we established the All for Our Animals Fund to provide essential daily care for the animals at your Zoos, including healthy diets, veterinary care, and enrichment activities. Now that our gates are open this includes extra precautions to ensure a safe environment for animals, staff and guests alike.

The well-being of our animals is at the core of our organization and unites the people who comprise it. You can help the animals you know and love by making a gift to the All for Our Animals Fund today. No donation is too small, and all proceeds raised will go directly towards funding critical animal care for the nearly 2,000 animals that call your Zoos home.

CARES Act Charitable Giving Incentive

In an effort to encourage everyone to support nonprofit organizations in these challenging times, the new federal coronavirus relief bill provides all taxpayers with an above-the-line deduction for up to $300 in charitable donations this year. The deduction is available even if you don’t itemize. If you do itemize, the CARES Act raises the limit on charitable gifts even further, to 100% of your Adjusted Gross Income. Please consult your financial adviser to understand what the new legislation means for you.
