Arizona Business Owner Donates Electric Cart to the Phoenix Zoo

Share Article

Shelves That Slide, a locally owned and operated Arizona business, generously donates an engraved electric cart to the Phoenix Zoo to assist zoo staff with their daily routines.

Opened in 1962 by Robert Maytag, founder of the Arizona Zoological Foundation, the Phoenix Zoo sits on 125 acres of land and is divided into the Arizona Trail, the Africa Trail, the Tropics Trail, and the Children’s Trail. With over 1300 animals dispersed around each trail, zoo staff members have plenty of responsibilities to share. As many as 350 volunteers have worked at the Phoenix Zoo, and have dedicated their time to the zoo’s conservation and sanctuary programs.

All in an effort to assist such a committed staff, Shelves That Slide donated a brand new electric cart so that individuals might be able to move around the extensive grounds more easily. Though their company is known for custom built sliding kitchen and cabinet doors, Shelves that Slide thought an electric cart might be more useful when tending to lions, tigers, and elephants.

The Phoenix Zoo is an integral part of the culture in the Valley of the Sun. The beautiful animals and the well-maintained grounds attract thousands of tourists and locals alike every year. Thanks to generous donations from local businesses like Shelves that Slide, and so many other contributors in and around Arizona, the zoo can continue to bring safe and exciting family fun to everyone who walks through the gates.
