WEST BEND — West Bend's Shalom Wildlife Zoo is now offering drive-thru exhibits for you and your family!

Due to Governor Tony Evers' Safer at Home order, families are unable to head to a local zoo and check out the animals. However, now you can thanks to Shalom Wildlife Zoo.

Every Friday through Monday, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., the zoo will allow you to drive your vehicle through the zoo and check out some of the animals.

Admission is $10 for anyone 13 or older, $5 for kids, and children 2 and under get in for free.

If you plan to take your family, there are a few rules and requests from the zoo. First, everyone must remain in their vehicles. You are not allowed to pet for feed the animals, and playground equipment and bathrooms are closed.

The zoo is also requesting that visitors bring exact change in order to prevent the exchange of possible contaminated currency. Additionally, dogs are allowed in your vehicle, and motorcycles are prohibited.
