On the night of July 3-4th the Austin Zoo and Animal Sanctuary was burglarized as thieves stole the ATM and broke into the gift shop and into the cash register and donation jars.
The Austin Zoo is a nonprofit organization that relies on private donations, gate admissions, grants and sponsorships to care for the 300 animals they house. Almost $25,000 was stolen or damaged in merchandise and $5,000 in cash was taken.
We’d love to invite you to donate and help the zoo recover from this horrible event. If you’d like to give or volunteer, click here!
