All for our Animals

We are here for our animals - and each other.

Make a Donation

While these are 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. The well-being of our animals is at the core of our organization and unites the people who comprise it. We know you care about our animals almost as much as we do, and we want to assure you that they will continue to receive the expert care they are accustomed to each and every day.

Our entire team is taking extraordinary measures to be fiscally prudent while ensuring the care of our animals and the safety of our people. Our animal care staff is on grounds at Franklin Park Zoo and Stone Zoo providing healthy diets, enrichment activities, veterinary care, and the human interaction our animals look forward to when the gates are open.

Some have asked how they can help during these challenging times. We appreciate your concern as we enter our peak attendance season without critical revenue from admission sales and other business as usual.  

You can help the animals you know and love by making a gift to our 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.
