Our most urgent needs are for indoor/outdoor caging, digital radiography systems, blood analyzers and other diagnostic equipment. The Society will also be funding equipment upgrades to replace aging diagnostic and therapeutic equipment. This includes digital x-ray systems, endoscopy, dental equipment, monitoring devices for anesthesia, and laboratory equipment.

This project is designed to improve the quality of veterinary care for the animals at the Zoo and at the same time enhance the experience of the Zoo visitors. Educational opportunities involving the Animal Hospital will be expanded in frequency and scope, and new educational media will be placed by the viewing windows of the new kitchen. These changes are essential to meeting the high standards of care for the animal collection and maintaining AZA accreditation.

Thank You to our Cornerstone Animal Hospital Donors
