Popcorn Park Zoo,Wildlife Club Fees Raised



Increased cost of living and a decline in donations has necessitated an increase in the admission cost to Popcorn Park Zoo and the monthly cost of supporting an animal in the Popcorn Park Wildlife Club beginning January 1, 2008.

Executive Director Roseann Trezza pointed out that itís an unfortunate sign of the times that as individuals and families spend more money on their own living expenses, less is donated to charitable organizations such as ours. At the same time, our costs to care for the thousands of animals who come to our animal shelters each year and are rescued and/or reside at Popcorn Park Zoo have risen dramatically, as well..

As an organization, we are doing everything we can to tighten our belts, but cannot cut costs where animal care is concerned. Every animal deserves plenty of food, safe and comfortable shelter and veterinary care. By slightly raising our admission fee to the zoo and the membership cost of the Wildlife Club we hope to better make ends meet..

Adult admission to Popcorn Park will now be $5, up from $4.25; and $4 for children under 12 and senior citizens, up from $3.

The cost of supporting an animal in the Popcorn Park Wildlife Club will increase from $3 to $4 monthly, a very small increase. As always, whether by mail or e-mail updates, Wildlfie Club members will continue to receive a membership card, free admission to Popcorn Park, a color photo of the sponsored animal, and an update three times a year which includes a holiday card. It is important to note that if donations exceed what is necessary for a given animal, the extra monies will be applied to the care of other zoo animals..

These small increases to our supporters and visitors will hopefully offset our rising animal care costs. We appreciate your kind concern and ongoing support..

If you'd like another way to help the residents of Popcorn Park Zoo, you might consider joining the Popcorn Park Zoological Society, which features a number of different levels of giving annually with a variety of benefits.
