How You Can Help

There are plenty of ways you can fit our mission to save animals into your life…actually, after trying it, you just might find yourself, re-evaluating what you really do have time for because what matters to you will become more apparent. 


Most people find our the “someday” they thought they'd be able to "afford" to help, becomes every day when they work with us to save lives! It really is THAT simple. 


- Donate -
Other Support





Any donation made- no matter how small- beats giving nothing at, maximize your impact with a recurring gift!

-Make a small monthly contribution-

This takes no time at all and yes, EVERYONE can afford it.


Motley Zoo's funding comes from 0% millionaires and 100%, hard-working, individuals, with modest budgets, busy lives, families and more. PEOPLE JUST LIKE YOU.


The people who support us are not wealthy, they just care- and they ACT on their passion for our mission.



Consistency is critical to achieving our mission to save animals- because the more we can rely on funding coming in regularly, the more animals we can save.


When we can direct our attention to each animal and their needs- rather than fundraising- we can say YES to taking in animals we'd otherwise have to decline. 

Motley Zoo spends approximately $15,000/ mo in veterinary bills- but currently receives just

$2,500 in monthly donations.


EVERY MONTH we need to worry about how we will bring in enough- just to continue what we're already doing- never mind, how we can afford that next critical care case!

This is possible only with YOU believing YOU have the power...

not someday,

not if you had more money...

but TODAY.

Your life will be enriched and defined by what you give and do- not by that which you avoid or fear.


Don't let an animal's life or death be determined by a few bucks you could have given today, because you thought someone else would- or that you can't give enough...

Giving at all is enough- because EVERYONE CAN RESCUE! 



-Make a one-time gift-

We are happy to accept one-time gifts of any amount. This can be cash, legacy & planned giving, or even a vehicle or other items.

You can choose to give via text or online.

This is the best way to get your hands on some furry friends. Fosters take a pet into their home, and watch it like one of their own, until a “furever” home is found. This is also the thing people are most afraid to do,     and resist considering. Fear of attachment is the top concern, but we wouldn’t want fosters who didn’t fall in love and care deeply! It is not a sad thing though when you see the little kid who is taking home their first puppy, or the elderly person who needed a friendly lap cat to keep them company.


Like giving a great gift to a beloved friend, so is the joy of sharing the love you have found in your foster pet. We say it is just like pet sitting an animal that has a home- we just don’t know who it is yet that will come pick them up. No matter how deeply you love your foster pet, you will never regret letting them go to share that love. Our volunteers     experience immense joy through fostering- you might just be missing out on the best thing you never knew you always wanted!

Requirements – There are very few other than:

Children in the home must be over the age of 5yrs to be considered as a foster. This is by far the best way for  kids and tweens (under 12) to volunteer with us, as they are truly too young yet to be fully capable/ functional volunteers on site.


We encourage you to check out more about fostering here. Your young kids can provide other means of assistance through fundraising, service projects and supply drives, and other work  done from home, described here.


If you are ready to help us, please email and tell us your story! We will follow up shortly with ways that we can put your skills to work…so be prepared to jump in!


There are many ways you can help our animals- from sharing our message or pet profiles, to collecting funds for the pets, or even making toys! Anyone can help one of our Roadies have a better start on their journey to adoptive homes!
