The Abilene Zoo is asking for your help. This week kicks off the City of Abilene's Be Kind to Animals Week.
The Zoo is participating by encouraging everyone to adopt a zoo animal.
You won't exactly get to take your wild child home with you, but your donation will help take care of your favorite animal.
The zoo is city funded and workers said that money goes towards food and water.
But they need additional money to afford improvements to the animals' habitat.
"The money goes towards caring for the animals. You're able to adopt your favorite animal and get a little closer to them, be able to say I helped this animal out at the zoo," said Liz Kellerman with the Abilene Zoo.
