100% of the money collected from docwalks4animals is being donated to a zoo or aquarium in dire need of help!
LET’S MAKE THIS MAP LOOK FULLER THAN THE COVID19 MAPS!!!
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.
