DONATIONS
Welcome
Welcome to the Santa Barbara Zoo online site for making donations!
Sponsor an Animal

When you become a Foster Feeder you are helping the Santa Barbara Zoo provide a healthy, nutritionally balanced diet for all of the animals! The Zoo's food bill is $220,000 a year and we have nearly 500 animals to feed. Various donation levels are available with different, wild benefits!

A Foster Feeder sponsorship is valid for one year from the month of donation. When the year is up, you will have the opportunity to renew your sponsorship to keep supporting your favorite animal! We truly appreciate everyone who is a Foster Feeder at any level!
