The GuZoo Animal Farm cannot exist without donation dollars. The GuZoo is a privately owned and operated business and is not eligible for government funding. Admission fees alone do not cover the ever increasing costs of animal care.
Feed, (hay, grain, fruit, supplements, rodent pellets, dog and cat food)
Veterinarian and medications (dewormers, vaccinations, special emergencies)
Fuel (to operate the feed and water tractors)
Natural gas (to heat the four buildings housing animals in the winter)
All the items listed above are just some of the expenses GuZoo must face daily all year around. We are constantly in need of funding to maintain and improve animal enclosures. Ultimately, when money is contributed in anyway, it helps buffer the general costs of zoo operation, and the animals in turn benefit.
Donating money is one way to contribute. Thank you if this is your chosen way to help out. However, many, many people find it much more rewarding to buy items and bring them to the GuZoo. We very much appreciate that too.
Here are some examples of items people have brought, that we have so much appreciated. And check out GuZoo's Wish List.
40lb bags of feed (rabbit food, dog food, cat food, oats, cubed alfalfa, etc.)
