5 EYEWITNESS NEWS is the official partner for the Como Zoo's Sponsor An Animal program.

For a $50 donation, you will receive:

  • Certificate of sponsorship
  • Photograph of your chosen animal
  • Animal fact sheet
  • Subscription to our newsletter
  • Animal plush or garden note cards

There are amazing animals and gardens just waiting for your support. How about supporting a polar bear, Amur Tiger, spider monkey, or penguin? Or perhaps supporting the Sunken Garden or the Japanese Garden sounds appealing? Animal and Garden Sponsorships make great gifts for any occasion.
