Jingle Paws being celebrated at RDC

Posted: Updated:

It's not too late to send Christmas gifts for animals at the Riverside Discovery Center in Scottsbluff.
All this month, staff at the zoo have been collecting food and toys as part of the annual Jingle Paws program.

Throughout local businesses around Scottsbluff and Gering - there's a list of items you can buy and drop off at the zoo.

Items include chew toys, bird food, and even CDs to play background music for animals.

Each day a different item is given to animals to help them stay active.
"And enrichment is just a way we can mentally and physically stimulate the animals, encourage some of it's natural behaviors," explains Kim Meidema. "So we have lots of different animals at the zoo. So we have to come up with lots of different enrichment."
Anyone can drop off items at the center until December 31st.
