Knoxville Zoo Wish List 

You can support Knoxville Zoo and your favorite animals by donating needed items, or the funds to purchase them. We now have an Amazon Wish List to make donating even easier! Simply click here and select the department(s) you would like to help. 

We also accept donations right here at the zoo. You can drop off items like gently used blankets and towels at the Ranger Station, located to the right of the ticket booth. If you'd like your donation to go to a specific department, please be sure to label your items and let the Rangers know. 

If you would like to donate food, such as produce or canned goods, please call Sheela Hira at 865-637-5331, ext 1353. We regret that due to limited storage space and fluctuating needs, we cannot always accept all items, so please call before delivering any food, even non-perishables. 

To donate money, please click the "Donate Online" button at the bottom of the page. You will have the option to making a one-time gift of $10 to $1000. 

Knoxville Zoo is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and all donations are tax-deductible. Please be sure to include your name and address with your donation, so that we can send you a receipt. (For Amazon Wish List purchases, you will have the option of including a gift receipt with this information; please see the wish list description for more details.)

For questions about donations, information about donating large items (golf carts, appliances, etc.) or the Amazon Wish List, please contact Erica Coffey at 865-637-5331, ext. 1037 or ecoffey@knoxville-zoo.org. Thank You for your gift!
