The Texas Zoo Hurricane Harvey Fund

In August of 2017, The Texas Zoo was devastated by the Category 4-Hurricane Harvey. Currently, the Guadalupe River is flooding the zoo . The staff is actively working with The Fort Worth and San Antonio zoos to ensure the safety and care for the animals. At this time, we are unable to accurately assess the structural damage from Harvey as the waters continue to rise but know it will be devastating. We are asking for help from our community.
My name is Angela B Gomez and as a current Board Member of The Texas Zoo and behalf of the other members, we ask that you consider donating to help save the zoo. Little by little becomes a lot. The monies raised will be used to rebuild and repair any and all damage from the hurricane. This includes any animal or reptile exhibits, damage to buildings, guest services area and any additional property that was ruined by the flood water. After the waters rescind and it is safe to enter and begin working on recovery, friends of the zoo are always welcome to volunteer their time or supplies.
This zoo has brought many fond memories for many families in Victoria and surrounding counties and it is our hope that with your help, we can continue to do so. Any amount  is greatly appreciated during this time and always. Thank you for supporting your local Texas Zoo.
