Friends of Capron Park Zoo How You can Support the Friends and Capron Park Zoo? Help fund the ultrasound machine!
A Veterinary Fund was established in 2012 to support the health of our almost 200 animals. The Zoo needs to purchase an ultrasound machine to help our veterinarian diagnose and then devise treatment plans more efficiently with real time images. This is a very useful technology that our veterinarian would like to be able to routinely apply to her care of our animals but we need your help! The cost of this potentially lifesaving piece of equipment averages $16,000, with additional cost to cover supplies needed. Make your donation! Click below to donate!
The animals, staff and Friends of Capron Park Zoo “THANK YOU” for your generosity. Please share this way of giving with friends and family.
