MILWAUKEE — Even though the Milwaukee County Zoo is closed, the animals are being well taken care of by the zookeepers.

The Zoological Society of Milwaukee is looking for people to show their support by sponsoring an animal.

The Sponsor an Animal program is one of the ways the Zoological Society raises money to support the zoo. Right, now there are three different animals you can sponsor: Stitch the porcupine, Stella the jaguar and Flurry the Gentoo penguin. As a thank you, you will receive a plush toy.

If you don't want a plush toy, you can also sponsor almost any other animal at the zoo.

Sponsoring an animal helps the zoo raise money as a non-profit organization.

Zoological Society staff are working remotely and are safely fulfilling orders. Shipping and handling are included in the price. Each sponsorship is partially tax-deductible. For more information on sponsorships and how you can help the Society, click here.
