Mission

Austin Zoo assists animals in need through rescue, rehabilitation and education. Austin Zoo is a private, non-profit "rescue zoo" that is home to over 300 animals. Austin Zoo is a nationally recognized animal rescue facility. Most of the animals at Austin Zoo were confiscated, abandoned, strays, unwanted, neglected and had nowhere else to go. Unfortunately, we must turn away many animals for lack of space (enclosures). We refer these animals to other reputable facilities but most are also full. We have additional land on which to expand and will be doing so in the next several years. We also provide educational opportunities for schools, colleges and universities and youth groups.
