Overview Tribute Giving Planned Giving

Emergency Animal Relief Fund

We are sensitive to the fact that our community’s needs are many at this time. We are so grateful to those that have asked how they can help. If you are able, please consider a donation to our Emergency Animal Relief Fund to assist us in maintaining the highest quality animal care. Your support is critical—now more than ever.



When you give to Zoo Knoxville, you become part of a community of people who care passionately about wildlife and wild places and who know that our zoo is part of what makes Knoxville and our region so special.

Donations from friends like you are critical to our award-winning education programming, conservation of the Earth’s most endangered animals, groundbreaking research and a better zoo for everyone! Your generous gift also supports Zoo Knoxville’s efforts to care for and enrich the lives of more than 800 animals that call Zoo Knoxville home.

No matter the size, each gift is important to our mission, and we can’t thank you enough!

A gift at $250 or above makes you eligible for our very special donor club – Circle of Friends. Click here for more information.
