Support the Animals by Donating to Our Yard Sale!
Annual

March 31 - April 2, 2017
9 am - 4 pm
Each year, HPZS holds a yard sale fundraiser that supports
the animal care and education programs we have here at
the sanctuary. This year, it will be happening March 31 - April
2, 2017, from 9 am - 4 pm, in the Pence Pavilion here
at Heritage Park Zoo. Right now, we need your help
to make this the most successful event yet! Your taxdeductible donations can be dropped off any day of the
week (10 am - 4 pm), or for larger items we can arrange
a pickup. If you have unwanted or unused items just taking up space, bring them to us - it’s the easiest way to support your favorite animals!
We’re so appreciative of this community’s support we couldn’t do all that we do without your help!


For any further information on the event, contact Alex
at 928.778.4242, ext. 16

For those interested in attending the yard sale, you’ll be
able to enter at a gate next to the Pavilion and browse
without paying any admission.

It’s Baby Animal Season!

Become a HPZS Member!

Every spring, we receive an influx of baby animal “rescues”. And
as well-intentioned as it is when people bring them in, it’s often
times unnecessary. Our conservation plea is this: when you see
baby animals alone in the wild, unless they’re noticeably injured, please let them be. The reaction can be to think they’ve
been abandoned and to take them in and help them. The reality is that many times their mother is nearby and they’re being
left for a reason. Handling them often does more harm than
help; it makes it harder to integrate them back into the wild.

HPZS members enjoy a year of free admission, reduced
admission for special events, 10% gift shop discount,
newsletters and discounts to a number of other zoos and
aquariums. If you sign up today, we will apply the admission
you paid towards the cost of your new membership.

Members:

We’re happy to provide triage and/or homes for these animals
when the need arises, but many times you’re better off leaving
the babies where they are. If you do have questions, please
don’t be afraid to call us or the Arizona Department of Game
& Fish. We’ll happily discuss the situation or come out to investigate if need be.

Remember to bring your membership
card when visiting. It will get you through
the front gates more quickly!
