Attendees must bring a donation of a non-perishable food item, hygiene item, new child’s toy, dog or cat food or new pet toy in addition to each ticket for zoo entry.  The donations help local non-profit organizations Mission of Hope, Young-Williams Animal Center, The Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley and Knox County Office on Aging’s Knox PAWS program.  Eligible items listed below.  Discounted tickets are valid only for the date printed on the ticket and no rain checks will be offered.  Limit 12 tickets per order.
