Paws for a Cause - Animal Park at Conservators Center
December 28, 2019

We all know that the best part about the holiday season is gift-giving! On December 28th, join us for a very special holiday celebration where you’ll have the opportunity to give back to your community. 

Our Animal Park will be open from 12:00pm to 4:00pm for you to visit and learn about our animal residents at your own pace. Hot beverages and snacks will be available in our Education Room for your enjoyment. Purchase your tickets when you arrive, and donate gently used goods for our use onsite or distribution to our local community (items like clothing, electronics, tools/equipment, and toys) and you will receive $5 off the price of admission.

That means that when you visit us on December 28th, you’ll be contributing to our mission of education and wildlife advocacy while also providing holiday joy to the families in our surrounding area! Could there a better way to spend the Saturday after Christmas?

Observe Our Animals At Your Own Pace

Because Paws for a Cause is a self-guided, walkabout event, you can spend as much time as you want admiring the residents you find the most fascinating. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff and volunteers will be stationed throughout the grounds to tell you about our animals and answer your questions. You can also take a break to enjoy some delicious hot beverages and snacks in our Education Room in the Visitors Center.

  • Adults - $16 - (For ages 12+)
  • Children - $14 - (For ages 3-11)
  • Military, Seniors, First Responders, & College Students - $14 - (Must bring ID)
