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.
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 continuing with our mission to help as many animals as possible.
We have completed the construction process of our new facility. It will require tremendous funding to replace everything we lost for day-to-day operations. Please view our room sponsorship opportunities. We still need your help!
