Paws to Remember

Join us this Christmas season for a heartwarming campaign, Paws to Remember, at Dartmoor Zoo.

We invite you to illuminate the life of your beloved pet and support animals in need by purchasing a light for our enchanting memorial garden. Let the festive spirit shine brightly as we come together to make a difference in the lives of our furry friends.

The Cause: Christmas is a time of joy and giving, and what better way to spread cheer than by extending our love to the animals that bring so much happiness to our lives? At Dartmoor Zoo, we are dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, and providing a loving sanctuary for a wide array of animals. By participating in our campaign, you’ll contribute directly to the care and well-being of these incredible animals during this magical season and beyond.

Light Up the Garden: Imagine our picturesque memorial Fern Garden adorned with beautiful lights, each representing a pet that has touched your life. By purchasing a light, you can honour your furry companion’s memory and share their light with the world. As the garden glows with a medley of light, it will serve as a powerful symbol of the love and joy our pets bring into our lives.

What you’ll receive:
For a £7 min donation per life, you’ll receive a digital, personalised certificate in memory of your cherished pet. Plus, your light will be carefully placed in our memorial garden, creating a stunning display of remembrance and compassion. Your lights will be available to view all throughout our Zooluminate event, from 8th December – 1st January.

Supporting Animal Welfare: Your contribution will go beyond lighting up our memorial garden. Funds raised through the campaign will directly support our animal welfare programs, including providing essential medical care, enrichment activities, and maintaining a safe and nurturing environment for our residents. By participating, you’ll play a vital role in ensuring a brighter future for the animals we care for.

Spread the Word: Share the “Paws to Remember” campaign with your friends, family, and fellow animal lovers. Together, we can make this Festive season truly special for the animals at Dartmoor Zoo. Let’s unite to bring warmth, love, and happiness to their lives.

Together, we can illuminate the world with compassion and bring joy to those who need it most.
