That's Their Bag

With your generosity, our cows, sheep, ponies and goats will forage from hanging hay bags that encourage the animals to eat slowly while minimizing waste.

Sold out!



Jolly Good Fun

It’s not just the Cubs and White Sox that love to play ball. Give the zoo’s ponies jolly balls and watch the games begin as they kick, chase and toss the durable balls, which feature handy handles.

Sold out!



Take the Lead

Ponies have busy schedules. They don’t have secretaries, but they do have reins to help keepers take them from one appointment to another.  Make sure the ponies get from lunch to grooming on time—present them with some leather leads!

Sold out!



Play Ball, Piglets!

Down at the farm the Mangalitsa piglets  are causing a stir with their energetic oinks! Give the new arrivals some plastic balls to play with so they can be active and entertained.

Flower Power

The Patio at Café Brauer, located just north of the Farm-in-the-Zoo, needs colorful baskets of flowers. The bright blooms will offer bursts of red, yellow and purple for all guests to enjoy on their day at the zoo!
