How To Donate


When donating, it would be very helpful for the bank if you included a list of species that you are keeping (This is not a requirement but will assist the bank in ordering antivenin that is needed the most in the province). After your donation you will be given an emergency phone number that is for your use in case of a snake bite emergency.

You may donate by cheque, money order, PayPal, or you can call the zoo and we can process Visa/Mastercard over the phone. Cheques have to be made out to Indian River Reptile Zoo re: Ontario Antivenin Bank. Tax receipts will be given to donations over $20. We are a registered with revenue canada as a charity. Our charity number is: 80522 2353 RR0001.
