Society News & Holiday Ideas

Happy Thanksgiving to You & Your Family…

The Society is very thankful for the many gifts we receive. The latest gift was the final pledge payment from the Ruth & William Merkey Foundation for our Education & Conservation Center. The debt on the building is PAID IN FULL & we couldn’t be happier! Our new goal is to have all funds raised for our Cornerstone Animal Hospital project by the same time next year. Please help us achieve this goal.

The New Cornerstone Animal Hospital is Operational!

Donated office furniture, medical equipment from the old hospital, and zoo animal care staff, have made their way over to our beautiful new building. The first operation took place in October. See below for the “After” pictures of the new Hospital.

October was demolition month for the old Animal Hospital. Walls came crashing down and new larger window openings were created. These larger windows will allow our zoo visitors to view what’s happening in what will be “Georgia’s Kitchen”, our new diet prep area. The building will also accommodate some of our zoo animal friends during the frigid months in a new winter holding area. Check out the pictures below for the “Before” look at the old hospital.

Our fundraising efforts continue with the new Cornerstone Animal Hospital. We have raised over $800,000.00 of our $1.3 million goal with money pledged, monetary and in-kind donations, and services. Please consider supporting this important project. 920-434-6814
