The New Hospital is Operational!
New Cornerstone Animal Hospital!
The N.E.W. Zoological Society, Inc., a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization whose primary purpose is to provide financial support to the NEW Zoo, is requesting your financial support.Our fundraising efforts continue with the new Cornerstone Animal Hospital and Recovery Center. As of January 1st we have raised over $1M of our $1.5 million goal with money pledged, in-kind services, and products donated. A big THANK YOU to our many donors! . Naming Rights are still available for many of the rooms. The $1.5 million project included the construction & furnishing of a new hospital and the renovation of the old hospital into a Nutrition Center with a diet kitchen and winter holding area. Both the Cornerstone Hospital & the Nutrition Center are operational. Our current fundraising efforts will pay off the building loan, purchase new medical equipment for the hospital and corral gates in the holding area of the hospital (these gates are very expensive but greatly needed). The New Animal Hospital will provide for current and future needs of preventative, medical, and surgical animal care. Our hope is to have both buildings up and running and the debt paid off in 2018!

Update*Education & Conservation Center
The new Education & Conservation Center is officially PAID IN FULL! Thanks to the Ruth & William Merkey Foundation for making the final payment on their 3 year pledge for this building early, we were able to pay off our debt ahead of schedule! We are thankful to everyone that supported our fund-raising efforts. The Center has been filled with activity. Students of all ages have walked through the doors to have valuable, hands-on learning experiences and increase their knowledge of the natural world and a variety of conservation issues. We are proud to share this new facility with our valued zoo guests, and confident that we have already made a difference and sparked a new appreciation for wildlife in the hearts of many.
