With more than 300 animals across more than 100 different species, Austin Zoo and Animal Sanctuary is a private, non-profit zoo rescuing animals and serving the Austin community.
Situated in the beautiful Hill Country just outside of town, Austin Zoo is visited by hundreds of thousands of individuals each year. The Austin Zoo and Animal Sanctuary is a pleasant Hill Country zoo experience where you can see the animals close-up, spend some time outdoors getting exercise, and have fun. It’s a place where our Austin community can truly make the most of their time together.
Austin Zoo needs your help! Everyday, there are many different things that need to get done to care for the animals and improve our community zoo experience. We need help with landscaping, cleaning, administration, animal care, education, and more. Our volunteer positions range from individuals who help weekly or monthly to group activities that might help us once in a while on a big project.
