DONATE & How to Help

We are a 501c3 non-profit company

Most zoos and aquariums are privately owned not-for-profits or rely on donations and memberships to supplement their limited budgets. Animal Enrichment Systems builds these devices at no cost to the facilities.

Each EED is custom-made and hand-crafted. You can help us continue to provide safe, quality enrichment, that the animals need and enjoy by donating here. We greatly appreciate donations of any amount. Thank you for your support!

GREAT NEWS “SHOP RAISE” comes to the rescue – click below!

ShopRaise Landing Page for Animal Enrichment Systems

We found a great replacement, Shop Raise which is free to use that donates a portion of every purchase to our nonprofit (you can just type in Animal Enrichment Systems, or any charity name in the search area) . Shop Raise has a list of 100’s of popular merchants (Walmart, Home Depot, Chewy, Lowes, etc)

Remember to use Shop Raise each time you make an online purchase!

You set up an account (you will be a “supporter”), download the ap on your phone or deskop and choose from the list of merchants.    Animal Enrichment systems will get a check each time the percentage of donations hit $50.  You get an email saying thank you for supporting your cause.
