docwalks4animals is now an official 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity!

Dr. Monica would like nothing more than to help ALL animals world-wide! So she has officially registered docwalks4animals as a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity whose mission is to support wildlife and environmental conservation projects. Click here to jump to the new website:

“If you routinely give something to charity each year, I hope you will consider adding to your list of supported charities. We are brand new, but I put together what I consider a very talented and dynamic board of directors, who bring diverse talents to our organization and, with your help, I am confident we can do great things for our planet.”
–Dr. Monica Metzdorf

100% of the money collected from docwalks4animals is being donated to a zoo or aquarium in dire need of help!


The red dots indicate zoos and aquariums where donations have been sent so far.

Since Dr. Monica’s walk was originally a plan to raise money for Southern California, the lion’s share(pun intended) of the donations went to the 3 places where Dr. Monica walked, the Los Angeles Zoo & Botanical Gardens, the Aquarium of the Pacific and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park!– each receiving $4,000.

Donation Goal Trackers for
Dr. Monica’s Walk
May 2nd – May 18th

Here is the first Giraffe goal tracker for Dr. Monica’s walk to help the Zoo and Aquarium animals. By the end of Dr. Monica’s second day and 45 miles logged of her approx. 130 mile trek, she reached her original collection goal of $7,500.00!! PLUS an additional $4’500 has now been fed to our hungry Seahorse tracker ! 🙂
These $12,000 was split 3 ways between the LA Zoo, the Aquarium of the Pacific and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. ($4,000.00 each)

However, MANY more zoos and aquariums throughout the world need money too. And many of these are in worse shape than our main beneficiary institutions! The additional funds raised have allowed us to send donations of $100 each to 21 other institutions.
