This #GivingZOOday November 30th, 2021, the Staten Island Zoo is raising funds to purchase a new ventilator for the animals that call Staten Island Zoo home. Each and every one of our animals visit the Animal Hospital each year. The new ventilator would help the zoo continue our mission of providing the upmost care and promote the highest standard of welfare for our animals!
Every donation no matter what size your gift will go
twice as far with a matching donation!
Daniel Tomai of Signature Construction Group, Inc. has pledged to match each donation dollar for dollar up to $10,000! The Staten Island Zoo is beyond thankful for the support of Daniel Tomai and his team at Signature Construction Group, Inc.
As an Thank You for donating, the first 25 donors to donate $10.00 dollars or more will receive a painting from one of our wonderful education animals, Bintu the African Crested Porcupine!
Anyone who donates $75.00 or more will be entered to win a private encounter for 4 people with the Staten Island Zoo's Hoffmann's two-toed sloth Dunkin!
The private encounter will last 20 minutes and you will have a chance to meet Dunkin, take pictures, and learn all about Dunkin from his zookeeper!
"Working with wild animals, most of our veterinary examinations are done under general anesthesia. This ventilator is designed for veterinarians, and provide more balanced, safer anesthesia for animals, from a pygmy rattlesnake to an Amur leopard. Instead of needing to manually ventilate or “bag” a patient, the ventilator provides appropriate volume and pressure of gas automatically – freeing up our veterinary technician to perform hands-on monitoring and assist with procedures." - Dr. Sarrah Kaye, DVM General Curator & Veterinarian at the Staten Island Zoo
Please take advantage of this matching gift opportunity before it’s too late. Donations will be matched through December 6th!
Donate today to have the greatest impact on our animals!
