Equipment and Supplies

We are currently seeking financial or in-kind support for:

What: Pick-up trucks in good working condition. Preferably 1-ton flat decks.

Why: These do the lions share of feeding and daily operations on-site, but our fleet is old and breaking down. Currently our entire Animal Care / Operations fleet is at least 20 years old (our newest work truck is a ’99).

What: Commercial bagging lawn-mower.

Why: Due to heavy use of some parts of our habitats, foxtail barley is thriving. We need the tools to remove these plants as they are harmful to our animals health when ingested. A bagging lawn-mower is the most efficient, non-chemical way to handle foxtail barley.
