The Fire - December 4, 2017

About the Fire


On December 4, 2017, Little Ponderosa suffered a devastating fire.  We lost many animal friends in the fire (please view our memorial page), as well as the entire main facility and its extensive contents.  We thank you again for your donations and love as we struggle through this trying time.

Many tears have been shed but we continue to pour our love and care into the animals here that need us.  The Little Ponderosa Zoo and Rescue is so dear to our hearts.  We are committed to rebuilding and continuing with our mission to help as many animals as possible.

We have begun the construction process.  It will require tremendous funding to rebuild our rescue facility and replace everything we lost for day-to-day operations.  Please view our construction photos and room sponsorship opportunities on our web site.  We still need your help! 


Please donate and help us Rebuild Together!
