FAQs

Why is this event held at John Ball Park Zoo?

We are glad you asked! John Ball Zoo is a proud member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, which is dedicated to maintaining standards of excellence in all aspects of animal care and management. They provide shelter for animals who may not be able to survive in the wild on their own due to illness or other circumstances. The Zoo works hard to educate and create awareness of animals at risk of becoming extinct and plays a large role in population sustainability. We love John Ball Zoo's heart for sheltering animals and making sure they have a place to call home, so we are partnering with them because Family Promise provides emergency shelter to families with children and we know how important is it to have a safe place to land during a traumtic time. 90% of our families find a place to call home! Please join us in helping end homelessness...one family at a time!
