Having a clinic on-site at Brookgreen is very important for the health and well-being of our animals. We are getting ready to expand our clinic facilities and move it closer to the Lowcountry Zoo. The shorter the distance an animal has to travel to be treated, the better for that animal. The relocated and renovated zoo clinic will also centralize all the behind the scenes operations of our Lowcountry Zoo.
In honor of Brookgreen's 88th Birthday (July 13th), we would like to raise $8,800.00 to help fund the move and renovation. Funds over the target goal will allow us to purchase supplies for the clinic and for our zoo keepers.
"Owl be there for you, will you be there for me?"
Brookgreen is very fortunate to have Dr. Sharon Jansky of Ark Animal Hospital as our zoo veterinarian. She comes to our onsite clinic to perform annual checkups on our animals, to care for the ailing, administer vaccinations and even do "field" calls. Being able to have treatment on-site greatly decreases the stress to the animals.
More information about Brookgreen Gardens: Since its founding in 1931, by Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington, Brookgreen Gardens has been a cultural center for our community. We hope residents and visitors will take pride in the fact that in their midst is one of America's premier gardens and one of a few select places in the United States to have earned accreditation from the American Association of Museums and the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, as well as being designated a National Historic Landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
