VolunteeringBella the 13 foot Burmese Python

We have an active volunteer program. Volunteers assist with various duties or projects around the zoo. These might include helping feed and clean the animals, exhibit renovations or construction, and taking animals out for the guests to see or touch. If you are interested in volunteering you must be 14 years or older.  You can e-mail us at with your name and phone number. We are looking for people able to volunteer once a week for an approximately three hour time block, but are able to take individuals who can volunteer at least once every three weeks. 

Animal Donations

We do occasionally accept animal donations if they would be a good fit for our animal collection. If you have an animal in good health that you would like to donate please e-mail us with a photo of the animal if possible at or call us at 1-888-472-3966. Listed below are reptiles that we are full to capacity and not currently accepting.
