Helping the Helpers: Little Ponderosa Zoo and Rescue

Find out how to help non-profits help our neighbors during the coronavirus pandemic.

CLINTON, Tenn — Little Ponderosa Zoo and Rescue is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. It's mission is to rescue exotic animals from across the United States. Approximately 98% of the animals are rescues. 

The number of exotic animals in desperate need of a home is growing.

Little Ponderosa provides a safe, loving, forever home for them. 

Each of the rescued animals has its own story. Many times people get exotic animals as pets and realize that they cannot meet the animal's needs. Sadly, these animals are dropped off at shelters and cannot be put up for adoption so they are euthanized. 

Some animals are neglected, abused or abandoned. 

Whatever the reason, Little Ponderosa Zoo and Rescue is committed to helping animals.
