John Ball Zoo

Animal ICU Matching Gift Challenge

You did it! Thank you so much. Your gift has made an incredible difference. Because of you, John Ball Zoo achieved the matching gift challenge of $77,000 offered by the Michigan Council of Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA). As a result, we are able to create a dedicated Intensive Care Unit (ICU) to provide top level care for our animals when they needed it most. These improved tools and equipment gives us a unique opportunity to advance the level of care we provide for our animals. 

These animal hospital renovation projects
provide the most comprehensive care for our animals, and
enhance the quality and caliber of veterinary medical support of the Zoo:

Laboratory / Small Animal ICU
Treatment, Examination Room and Surgical Suite
Necropsy / Pathology Suite
Quarantine Facility
