Every Dollar You Give Supports Animal Care

The Houston Zoo is home to thousands of animals. As you can imagine, we go through TONS of food! Thanks to donors like you, we’re able to provide nutritious meals and tasty treats to every animal—from tiny meerkats to giant giraffes. This holiday season, “Give the Gift of Grub” to your favorite animals at the Houston Zoo. All funds raised from the Gift of Grub campaign go directly to supporting our animal care efforts.

DOUBLE Your Gift, Thanks to TXU Energy

Our partner, TXU Energy, is generously matching every contribution, up to $50,000, until December 31. That means a tax-deductible gift of $50 is worth $100. Double the grub goodness you could provide our animals by taking advantage of this matching gift opportunity!
