Hattiesburg Zoo asking for gifts for animals

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Animals need love during the holidays, too! The Hattiesburg Zoo has a wish list of items for its animals.

The items they're asking for are things people may not know the zoo needs, such as towels, animal crates, and even toys.

You can simply drop off the items at the zoo during normal business hours.

"We need lots of items here at the zoo. Things that you might even have at your house. It could be blankets and dog crates and toys for the animals to play with and enjoy and just generally make them happy and enjoy this cool weather we're having," said animal care manager Stephen Taylor.

Don't forget, the zoo is hosting its Zoo Lights and Holiday Market each night from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. through this Saturday.
