Give BIG, Get BAD

"Giving is not just about making a donation - it's about making a difference." - Kathy Calvin

Give BIG 2021

May 4th & 5th

Give BIG ($50+) and get a "bad" pet drawing AND your donation is doubled!  You can make a difference!

Motley Zoo's year has started off with a heavy demand for our services - to the most critical and needy animals out there.


Unfortunately though donations have been light and we're already falling behind in our capacity for care. The animals need YOU to shower them with support TODAY!

Join us in turning things around for the animals, those in the most desperate need -

animals that have no one else to save them! 

Last year, our very-own volunteers had an absolute blast drawing pet portraits as the donations rolled in, and THIS year we’ve got a bunch of new “artists” on board, who are ready to jump in and create personal masterpieces of your beloved pets!  Or maybe you could surprise a friend with one!

Our fundraising GOAL is $50,000 so that we can continue to fulfill our mission of saving as many lives as possible....but we can only do this with YOUR help and incredible generosity like last year.  The animals need you now, more than ever before.

Rescue never stops. We won't either.

Despite the immense challenges of 2020, we saved a record number of lives, providing them all second chances at life.  We are off to a fast pace in 2021 as well.

Who will benefit most from your donation?

Without adequate funding in our piggy bank, we would have been forced to say "no" to taking in Teefer Sutherland, this ridiculously handsome little ginger kitty, who suffers from a deformity of his jaw, causing his teeth to be misaligned.  He was purr-fectly imperfect in our minds, and even bonded with his very own emotional support kitten / best friend, Sue Snell., while in our foster care.  Your generosity helps us continue to say "Yes" to animals just like Teefer.  WIthout Motley Zoo, he would not have had this second chance and a forever home!

Simply put: the animals.

Since Covid hit last year, our donations have plunged, and our Rock Star Treatment Dog Daycare has been greatly incapacitated. As you may or may not know, our dog daycare has been one of the  primary fundraising sources over our history, and without those funds coming in, we don't have as much to work with when it comes to our rescue mission. 


As a result, we can't cover veterinary care for all the animals we are asked to save. 


Motley Zoo is known for special care cases like Teefer Sutherland, who would have been euthanized for malocclusion: a deformed jaw.


Shelters don't have the capacity to take on specialized care that falls "outside the norm" - but that's exactly what we are here to do.

However, we need the funding to support this kind of exceptional care...Funding we currently lack.

Does your employer match charitable giving?

Matching funds = more animals we can save! 

Peyton Manning, who came to us unable to walk after an abnormal reaction to vaccinations, is now thriving in his foster home while he awaits that special someone to scoop him up, giving him the forever home he deserves.

Give to save the lives of animals like adoptable Peyton Manning.


Four year old Peyton was left unable to walk after he had a bizarre reaction to his vaccines. His legs completely gave out and walking was more than somewhat of a challenge...

He didn't know if his life was changed forever...his legs aside, he was lucky to find out it was, because we took him in!

Thankfully, he is making progress and his legs are getting stronger day by day...and we know one day this will all be behind him.

Now this soon-to-be hall of famer is thriving in his foster home - and even just found his forever family!!!  - one of the many animals that Motley Zoo refuses to say "no" to... because we know there is no one else who will. 

Save the Date(s): Tuesday, May 4th

and Wednesday, May 5th

What kind of fundraiser would this be without the chance to win something cool?


When you donate to Motley Zoo during Give Big on May 4th and 5th, you will be entered to win one of three $100 gift cards to our rock star shop, MZ Behind The Seamz. 


You can rock rescue and stock your closet from a selection of our t-shirts,  hoodies, tank tops and various rockin' accessories like the photos shown here!  Give BIG to save lives and be a real life rock star for rescue!
