For anyone looking for some cute relief from current events, the Zoological Society has new animal sponsorships available. Right now, people can sponsor Stitch the porcupine, Stella the jaguar and Flurry the Gentoo penguin. Animal sponsorships are one way the Society raises money to fulfill its mission to conserve, educate and support the Milwaukee County Zoo.

When you sponsor one of these three animals, not only do you get an adorable plush toy, you also get information about the animal. It’s cute, educational and helps a local nonprofit continue to raise money during these uncertain times.

Animal 1

Sponsor Flurry for $30. Flurry is a male Gentoo penguin and was born on Christmas Day inside the bird building at the Milwaukee the County Zoo. Keepers say he really enjoys swimming and has a big appetite. He is currently eating a couple pounds of fish at each feeding.

Animal 2

The Stitch sponsorship is available for $45. Stitch is a North American porcupine living in the farm area of the Zoo. He will be turning 1 year old in May and loves plush-toy animals. His favorite is a bunny and a duck.

Animal 3

Sponsor Stella for $45. This female jaguar stuns guests with her beauty in the big cat building. She is mom to male jaguar Francisco, and that is why this sponsorship will make a great Mother’s Day gift.

Zoological Society staff are working remotely and are safely fulfilling orders. Shipping and handling are included in the price. Each sponsorship is partially tax-deductible. For more information on sponsorships and how you can help the Society, go to
