Thousands of animals rescued over the 25-year history

Austin Zoo is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year. Started in 1990 with the mission and purpose of serving as a rescue zoo and sanctuary for abandoned and, oftentimes, mistreated animals, Austin Zoo has held true to that mission and grown to be one of the pre-eminent rescue zoos in the country. Currently housing more than 300 animals from more than 100 different species– including bears, lions, tigers, tortoises and a variety of monkey species – Austin Zoo continues to play an important role as both a safe haven for these animals as well as an education center for the community.

“We have been incredibly blessed during our 25-year history due to the continued support from our community,” said Patti Clark, Executive Director of Austin Zoo. “To celebrate and honor the people who have helped make it possible, Austin Zoo is offering special anniversary weekend pricing on September 12 and 13. All regular priced single admission rates will be 25% off. “ (Anniversary pricing is not valid with any other discounted offers. Zoo hours are 9:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.)
