Shiny Ornaments

Thanks to some awesome local businesses, we are grateful to have giving trees that benefit Motley Zoo's animals at local stores.

Stop by and grab an ornament from the tree (which you can keep) and shop for our animals' most needed items. This makes a super-fun activity for the kids who want to get involved and make change in the world.
