The Seneca Park Zoo is always in need of your donations. While "gently used" items are accepted, we prefer new goods. (Remember, your gift-in-kind donation may be eligible for a tax deduction).

Please call ahead to ensure staff is on hand to receive your donation. If you would like to make a donation, please call Aimee Hofmann at (585) 336-7217 or e-mail ahofmann@senecazoo.org. Thank you for your generosity.
