The Austin Zoo's Burglary Recovery Fund Raises $15,000

Updated: Saturday, July 12 2014, 06:34 PM CDT

One week after a burglary, the Austin Zoo and Animal Sanctuary raises $15,000.

A fundraiser Thursday night at Handlebar in downtown Austin helped raise about $600 for the burglary recovery fund.

Zoo Director, Patty Clark, says Chili's Restaurant has also graciously offered to host a fundraising night for the zoo. On Wednesday, July 16th from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., 10 percent of sales from all the restaurants in Central Texas will go towards the non-profit. Patrons are just asked to mention they would like to help the Austin Zoo and Animal Sanctuary.

On the Fourth of July, thieves broke into the non-profit's gift shop stealing roughly $5,000 cash and causing more than $20,000 in damages. The crooks are still at large.

With the help of donors, Clark says the zoo is now offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest. If you have any information, you're asked to call 512-288-1490.
